Kare Center

At Kare Center, our post-discharge follow-up service is designed to help recovering patients heal and give the assistance they require once they have been discharged from our clinics. Clinically trained registered nurses and caregivers will examine patients’ files and contact them within 12-48 hours, seven days, fourteen days, and thirty days after discharge. They talk about durable medical equipment (DME) and pharmaceutical needs, as well as education, PCP appointments, and any further post-discharge assistance that may be required.

If you have a post-COVID or other patient who requires ongoing acute care, contact a Kare Center Clinical Liaison for an assessment. Our specialists will assist you in determining if your patient requires a long-term acute care hospital stay. If you are unclear who your Vital N More representative is, please contact us using the contact information given on this website to talk with a qualified and registered nurse who can help you.

The Importance of Post-Discharge Follow-Up in Patient Outcomes

With more and more patients becoming sensitive about their health and the kind of hospitals that they receive care from, physicians are fascinated by the relative increasing benefits that come with greater involvement on the part of the patients and how this ultimately impacts their satisfaction level positively.

For context, many researchers have found that in-patients who rate their care with a lower degree of satisfaction are very more likely to be readmitted within the first 30 days, and even with terrible post-discharge complications.

It can therefore be deduced that greater patients’ active involvements and satisfaction are key contributors to patients’ recovery

Many researches also show the benefits of post-discharge follow-ups

While many tactics for promoting patient-centric health care are used when the patients are in the hospital, it is even more critical to maintain this level of care following their discharge. According to research, patients that were hospitalized with, for example, acute diseases have very low chances of being readmitted if they are contacted as part of an early follow-up program after release.

If patients with three or more chronic diseases are contacted by a provider of care within 14 days of discharge, 20 percent of readmissions are likely to be avoided.
