In-home care promotes activities that improve quality of life, is more comfortable for patients, lowers the risk of infection and lessens the likelihood of future hospitalizations.
Our team has extensive experience in seamlessly transitioning patients from an acute hospital setting, inpatient treatment or clinic to home-based healthcare. Patients are also referred to us from physicians, community agencies, senior communities, past and current clients and direct outreach. We understand the nuances of providing care in the home setting and consistently deliver the highest-quality patient experience through skilled nursing and skilled therapy services. Our focus is for every patient to receive the best care while in a comfortable, familiar and safe environment.
We offer physical, occupational and speech therapy services that deliver real results and produce superior outcomes. From improving mobility, reducing fall risk and enhancing verbal communication to reducing the risk of aspiration pneumonia, our skilled therapists work with physicians to create a customized plan for each patient’s specific needs.
Our home health aides are trained to assist patients with activities of daily living (ADL) such as eating, bathing, grooming and taking vital signs. Home health aides also provide support through care activities such as checking a patient’s pulse, respiration and blood pressure. These team members work under the supervision of our nurses and therapists to ensure that each patient's customized care plan is fulfilled.
When it comes to home health, having the right software solutions and resources makes a big difference in patient care. Our state-of-the-art software allows us to provide a superior in-home experience by enabling secure, compliant, reliable and organized communication between patients and their care team. The result is unparalleled care through simple processes and comprehensive information management.
Through our state-of-the-art Homecare Homebase software solutions, virtually all aspects of our clinical operations are streamlined, from referral processing, to scheduling and patient visit documentation, with timely management of physician orders. Our technology provides efficiency and helps us deliver better patient outcomes.
Our web-based portal delivers increased transparency into a patient’s history, progress and customized plan of care. Encompass Health Connection provides clarity and collaboration to the home health experience.
Through a third-party software solution, we have access to extensive home health clinical data that helps our teams better manage and plan care for patients who may have ongoing care needs. These tools help communication across teams, streamline processes and improve the overall patient experience. They also support improved follow up communication with at-risk patients after they are discharged
