What is Post-Acute Care?
Post-acute care (PAC) refers to a range of healthcare services provided to individuals after they have been discharged from a hospital stay. It focuses on the transition from acute care settings, such as hospitals, to a lower level of care or home. Our transitional care services aim to support patients in their recovery process, manage their medical conditions, and assist with rehabilitation and activities of daily living. The goal of post-acute care is to optimize patients’ recovery, minimize hospital readmissions, and enhance their overall quality of life.
How Do Post-Acute Care Transitions Work?
Our four-step process ensures a smooth shift from acute care to lower levels of care or home. With assessment, coordination, service implementation, and ongoing support, these transitions optimize patient recovery and maintain care continuity.
Upon discharge from an acute care facility, a thorough assessment of the patient’s needs is conducted. This assessment includes evaluating medical conditions, functional abilities, and social support systems. Based on this assessment, a personalized care plan is developed, outlining the necessary services and resources required for a successful transition.
Effective coordination among healthcare providers, including physicians, nurses, therapists, and caregivers, is crucial during transitions. Clear communication channels ensure seamless transfer of medical records, medication information, and treatment plans, and liaison with community resources arranges the appropriate level of care.
After establishing the care plan, we implement necessary services and interventions: skilled nursing care, rehabilitation therapies, medication management, wound care, and support for recovery and independence. Continuous monitoring and evaluation ensure progress and adjustments when needed.
Post-transition, follow-up visits maintain care continuity. Healthcare professionals assess progress, address concerns, and ensure post-acute services meet needs. Education and guidance support patients and caregivers for a smooth recovery.
