Preventative care is not a new idea. It has existed since Florence Nightingale had a vision to bring healthcare to the home.
Healthbridge is a family focused company that was created in order to provide the nation’s highest quality of in-home case management. By advocating, coordinating and educating our staff and network of members, we are leading the charge in preventative care. It is our goal to “bridge” the gap between hospital and home in order to keep members comfortable, healthy and safe in their home as opposed to the hospital.
Our passion comes from decades of clinical care and healthcare experience.
For us, it’s personal.
We have family members with multiple chronic conditions that are in the autumn of their life. Therefore, as the number of senior citizens continues to grow rapidly in America, our dream is to connect the most qualified caregivers to the most needy patients, in the most effective way possible….In their home or on the phone.
We view every member as an individual with real needs and concerns, who is seeking help. As you can imagine, this is not easy, and until recently it wasn’t even a service that was paid for. However, as demonstrated in this article from the Journal of the American Medical Association, in-person case management has been proven to lower healthcare costs by as much as 7%.
Healthcare is complicated, even for younger healthy people…imagine what life would be like if you are sick and not tech-savvy? Unfortunately, that is what many members face on a daily basis, and they do not know where to turn or how to improve their quality of life. Because healthcare is confusing, when you have multiple chronic conditions, it makes the situation even worse.
‘Who do I call?’
‘Where do I go?’
‘Perhaps it’s easier to go the hospital.’
We thought…there has to be a better way. There must be something that we can do to prevent members from experiencing health problems so that they can avoid expensive procedures and hospital stays.
Our own families want to stay at home, live out their lives with friends in a familiar setting, and NOT in a hospital bed.
Something had to give.
And then a breakthrough finally came.
New rules allowed us to clear away the smoke for members and clear a path for better communication and coordination of care. There are still many gaps in the current home care systems. Primary care and specialists struggle with time and capacity. It is hard to cover those who need it most.
Are you like us?
Do you want to make a difference?
Do you believe there has to be a better way?
Have you ever thought the system is long overdue for preventative care?
Join us in providing clinically sound, evidence-based plans to ensure each member has the support to live out their lives…happy, healthy, home.
HealthBridge bridges the gap between the old view and new era of healthcare.
