Post Discharge Management Q & A

What is post-discharge management?

Post-discharge management is one of the patient-centered services available at HouseCall MD. 

Being sent home from the hospital or a rehabilitation facility is a complex process, requiring communication between the hospital care team, your primary care provider, and any service providers you need to help you at home.

Unfortunately, any cracks in communication may prevent patients from getting the care they need once they get home. Without proper follow-up care and treatments, patients are at risk of getting sick and returning to the hospital.

HouseCall MD is an internal medicine practice specializing in geriatric care. The team provides care for their patients at home, at the hospital, or in a facility. This ongoing care ensures their patients get what they need no matter where they are. 

With post-discharge management, the HouseCall MD team coordinates all the services and care you need when you get home. This additional service may help prevent readmission to the hospital.

Who benefits from post-discharge management?
