Transitional care is designed to help patients get back on their feet safely after a hospital or rehabilitation stay because of an illness or surgery. Our staff will help you with things like medication management, prescription knowledge and understanding, house calls, Telehealth, and more. MidSouth Transitions Medical Group will help put in place any services you may need at home to help you continue your recovery.
We Value Partnership
MidSouth Transitions Medical Group values partnerships. We wouldn't be able to provide exceptional care without our partners. We work with following: Hospitals, Rehabilitation Hospitals and Facilities, Skilled Nursing Facilities, Physicians, Specialists such as Oncologists, Cardiologists, Pulmonologists, and more; Home Health Agencies, Palliative Care companies, DME companies, Pharmacies, Out Patient Therapy, the local community, and so many more to ensure patients receive the best post acute care.
Hospital to Home
Hospital to Home transitional care focuses on the patients post acute needs. One of our primary goals is to help reduce hospital readmission. We provide midlevel APN care in the home to improve continuity of care as the patients transition from an inpatient setting back to their home. We can temporarily bridge the gap for patients that are not yet established with a PCP (Primary Care Physician) and help with a referral to a PCP of patient's choice if they do not already have one. We help educate and drive compliance. Seeing the patient twice a week allows us to adjust the patients needs quickly. Patients discharging from an in patient stay qualifies them for transitional services. (pending eligibility and insurance authorization)
Home-based transitional care focuses on the whole patient and provides direct, ongoing care for medical, emotional, and social needs, and diagnostic testing. Home visits identify problems that might not be uncovered during an office visit—such as patients using the wrong medicines, fall risks in the home, or pets being around someone who has severe breathing problem. Services include administering IV fluids and medications, wound management, ordering medical equipment, etc.
Telemedicine & Telehealth
Telemedicine allows health care professionals to evaluate, diagnose and treat patients at a distance using telecommunications technology. The approach has been through a striking evolution in the last decade and it is becoming an increasingly important part of the American healthcare infrastructure. With Telehealth we can focus on a broader array of digital healthcare activities and services.
Our clinical pharmacists work directly with physicians, other health professionals, and patients to ensure that the medications prescribed for patients contribute to the best possible health outcomes.
