HOW IT WORKS
Homeward Healthcare™ Works For The Patients, The Hospitals, and The Payers
The program begins when a healthcare professional delivers a touch screen tablet to the patient’s bedside and enters the key variables (or integrates with EHR). The easy to use application, Digital Discharge™, prompts and guides the patient with Audio, Visual, and Touch interaction.
The program assesses the patient’s support system at home, stresses the importance of following up with their primary care doctor, and covers all the educational and behavioral subjects that are relevant to the patient. All of this data is combined with key indicators like hemoglobin and sodium levels in order to create the RiskScore™.
High risk patient assessments trigger real time alerts. The alerts help the staff find the most appropriate care transition environment using CareTrans™. By aligning the high risk patients with the most effective resources, Homeward Healthcare™ will help reduce readmissions.
