Our team of Transition Coaches are helping patients avoid hospital readmission and have better health at home.
Once enrolled, your Transition Coach will guide you in the following areas:
Review my discharge instructions with me after being discharged from the hospital
Help me identify questions I have for my doctor
Improve my ability to schedule timely follow-up care
Improve my knowledge of my symptoms related to my conditions and when I should seek medical advice
Provide me with a booklet where I can write down my medical conditions, medications that I am taking at home, and any questions I have for my doctors or nurses
What to Expect
It is a 30-day program
One in-hospital meeting
One in-home visit
Two follow-up phone calls
Bringing your loved one home from the hospital can be overwhelming. There are so many things to remember and to do. Having a good plan is the first step. Our Transition Coaches will help you with all of this.
“Your visit was very helpful to me. I don’t feel powerless.”
“The program laid out everything that I needed to do. You explained that it was up to me to handle my own recovery.”
Spouse: “It is very helpful to talk freely with someone without being judged.”
PCP comment during office visit: “I wish everyone has this (PHR) and was this prepared. It would save so much time.”
”Coaching has been wonderful, I feel like I know I can do this now.”
“I appreciate all that you have done. It has helped me think about what I want to do. You have given me the information on what to do if I am stuck.”
