Hospital at Home
A program designed for hospitals that require urgent in-home medical assessments of patients who have had an exacerbation of an existing disease or injury. The Post intensive care team is driven by Physicians and Nurse Practitioners who provide home visits until the patient has been stabilized. Seeing patients in their home environment is not only more cost effective, but also allows for an in-depth view into a patient’s environment, allowing for a better understanding of potential reasons for an exacerbation or injury.
Our innovative model is perfect for home health patients because it adds the unique feature of a physician organization. We are a Medicare certified organization, accredited by ACHC.

This program is designed for high risk patients with any respiratory diagnosis who would benefit from a medically driven pulmonary rehabilitation program. The program includes home medical assessments and intensive therapy to increase the patient’s daily activity. The “high risk” patient demographic pertains to those most at risk for returning to a hospital setting. This factor demands health coaching for self-management techniques. High risk patients require a physician–directed highly skilled team which will provide a detailed evaluation, ongoing assessment, and individualized treatment plan that is more intensive than what traditional homecare agencies can offer. The program’s treatment provided by physical and occupational therapists, combined with skilled nursing care, teaches the patient energy conservation techniques and compensatory strategies allowing them to improve their ability to perform daily activities, thus improving their quality of life. The program offers patients the choice to receive rehabilitation care in the safety and privacy of their own home and avoid the risk of institutional infections.

The Pathways medical staff will work in conjunction with the resident’s PCP and/or Specialist in regard to their ongoing care. In addition to individual care. In the case that a resident is hospitalized, a Pathways nurse liaison will follow the patient through their hospital stay, providing updates to caregivers and facility personnel regarding their return to the assisted living facility.
