“Let Our Family Care For Your Family”

Hospital to Home (H2H)

Family Home Health Services’ goal is to work with physicians, family members and the patient to develop the most efficient plan of care. The concept is designed to be cost effective and convenient to the patient, providing comprehensive health care services right in the home.

In home, Family Home Health Services will reduce the need of the patient for hospitalization, thereby reducing both the cost and inconvenience of recovery.

We accomplish this goal by strategically working with hospitals and partnering with quality improvement campaigns like Hospital to Home (H2H). The H2H national quality improvement initiative is an initiative to reduce cardiovascular-related hospital readmissions and the transition from inpatient to outpatient status for individuals hospitalized with cardiovascular disease.*

Nearly 20% of Medicare patients are readmitted to the hospital within 30 days of discharge, with heart failure listed as the most common reason for readmission. In 2004 alone, the total cost of readmission was $17.4 billion.

Family Home Health Services is implementing the focus of this H2H Quality Initiative, including the three main domains that provide opportunities for improvement:

    1.  Medication Management Post-Discharge
         Is the patient familiar and competent with their medications
         and do they have access to them?
    2.  Early Follow Up
         Does the patient have follow-up visit scheduled within a
         week of discharge and are they able to get there?
    3.  Symptom Management
         Does the patients fully comprehend the signs and symptoms
         that require medical attention and to contact if they occur?

We will also provide the Hearts At Home Specialty Program and the Zoe® Monitoring System to patients with CHF or other indicative diagnoses.
