Home Healthcare

Home Care is not only a desirable health care delivery system for many patients, but it is also efficient and effective. The value can be demonstrated by outcome measurements such as low rehospitalization and emergency care rates, along with the prevention of post-hospitalization wound infections and diseases. These evidence-based outcomes demonstrate that a smooth transition from hospital to home care is frequently in the best interest of patients, professionals and payors.
