Following a major treatment or procedure, like surgery, a patient may require post acute care. For more intensive post acute care, patients are often referred to inpatient facilities. However, when only rehabilitative or palliative care is necessary then post acute care is recommended. For patients who are homebound following their original treatment, ACT Health Solutions can provide the needed post acute care.

Elements of this may include:
  • Care coordination

  • Prescribing medication

  • Performing a general wellness exam

  • Additional diagnostic testing, when necessary

Benefits of Post Acute Care

Patients who receive post acute care following discharge are less likely to be readmitted to the hospital for complications relating to their admission diagnosis. During post acute medical services, patients are closely monitored for any changes in their condition, poor reactions to medication, or complications to their recovery. Post acute care also serves as a transition into self-managed care.
