Every day, all across the country, our LHC Group family is helping people. There are 8,500 of us, standing shoulder to shoulder, helping the patients in our care live fuller, healthier lives. We do this because helping people is, quite simply, the reason we exist. It’s our purpose.
Our commitment to innovation and service excellence influences every facet of patient care and is the cornerstone of our industry-leading clinical programs. As a result, we routinely rank as a national leader in patient satisfaction.
As a leader in post-acute care, we partner with the nation’s leading hospitals and health systems to bring a seamless, patient-centered continuum of care to the communities we serve.
Put the power of our industry-leading T3 disease management strategy to work for you. Proper transition, triage and training have been clinically proven to reduce ER visits and prevent avoidable readmissions. Our skilled clinicians have completed continuing education in chronic diseases and conditions of aging, and we’ll partner with you and your patients to promote recovery in the comfort of home.
Our company is committed to the deployment of leading technology that allows our clinicians to deliver more efficient and effective patient care. We’re aggressively moving forward with a companywide conversion to point-of-care technology. By transitioning to an electronic medical record solution, we’re improving the operational, clinical and financial success of our company’s home health and hospice agencies.
In hospitals around the country, our dedicated care transition coordinators serve as a vital link between physician, hospital, home health agency and patient – facilitating the transition from acute to post-acute care. From medication management and post-discharge education to follow-up appointment coordination, our care transition coordinators help improve patient outcomes and reduce avoidable hospitalizations.
Our approach to patient care starts with education. We teach our patients the tools they need they need to self-manage and identify red flags that may cause their condition or symptoms to worsen – promoting early intervention and greater independence.
To reduce unnecessary ER visits and prevent readmission, we teach patients to call us first when problems or symptoms occur. Our on-call nurses are armed with triage protocols to respond appropriately to patient needs. We also offer the Philips Lifeline medical alert service for qualified home health patients as part of the plan of care. When a patient pushes the Lifeline personal help button, he or she will be contacted right away by a local on-call nurse.
Telehealth is a proven tool to reduce avoidable hospitalization and ER visits. By continuously monitoring and assessing our patients’ vital signs, we can improve clinical outcomes for individuals with heart failure, COPD, diabetes, hypertension and other chronic conditions.
Our comprehensive Beyond Balance program focuses on reducing the risk of injury and falls for at-risk patients or those who have fallen in the past. We take a holistic, individualized approach to balance and mobility, providing in-depth treatment strategies designed to help promote functional mobility.
For seniors living with diminished mental health, proper care can be the difference between golden years and stolen years. Our compassionate medical social workers and licensed nurses use a multidisciplinary approach to build comprehensive behavioral health plans that help patients and families live the healthiest life possible.
Our commitment to the patients in our care doesn’t end with discharge. A member of our team will make two calls to patients after home health services have ended to check on their recovery and progress. This service is one more way we’re helping keep our patients out of the hospital and in the comfort of home.
At LHC Group, we challenge our clinical team to learn and lead through a comprehensive series of innovative online credentialing tools. As an accredited provider of continuing nursing education, we are proud to usher in a new era of nursing excellence and are committed to advancing the nursing profession through high-quality education programs developed specifically for clinicians.
A strong support system is an important part of healing for both patients and caregivers. We’re proud to offer access to the CareFlash service. It takes just a few simple steps to create a secure, invitation-only website that allows patients and caregivers to involve loved ones in their care.
