Constance Provides Virtual Non-medical Social Support Post-Discharge for Complex Care Management, Improving Quality of Life and Reducing Risk of Rehospitalization for Patients
A patient-centered, virtual care management model ensures older adults with complex needs thrive at home post acute and subacute care. This is even more true during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our Constance team had confidence there would be an immediate, measurable impact on the amount of time required of providers to fully support older patients discharged with multiple health issues. Constance proved successful in supporting the recuperation of patients at home while saving staff time and preventing negative health outcomes.
Constance provided its person-centered, virtual social support system to help a patient with multiple health issues recover and lower their rehospitalization risk.
Nurses and social workers providing in-patient care are typically not tasked with following-up with patients post-discharge due to lack of time and resources. Information about a patient’s status at home, however, can be key in ensuring a successful recovery and preventing rehospitalization. Many patients struggle to follow their discharge plan of care, including medication management, physical therapy adherence, or primary care physician follow-up which may lead to significant decline. Without frequent, proactive post-discharge follow-up, recently discharged patients may be at risk of poor outcomes and rehospitalizations.
Constance Family Coordinators quickly provided post-discharge needs assessments, intervention plans, and active meaningful support for complex-care patients. Often they addressed Social Determinants of Health, including:
- Food insecurity
- Low income
- Access to healthcare
- Availability of support services
- Affordability of medications
- Anxiety and stress
