Privately-Owned and Hospital-Affiliated ancillary services are faced with consistent obstacles specifically tied to quality measures/outcomes, differentiating services/standards, and providing a vehicle to admit appropriate patients with appropriate justification into their services.
Home Health/Outpatient Therapy:
Too often, people are brought into skilled services at a point where their condition has declined functionally where progress can be stymied. In these cases, the patient would've significantly benefitted from being cared for sooner or in a less-restrictive setting (rather than after a preventative hospitalization). With Safe Balance, the referring provider is alerted when skilled services should be considered as a means to rehabilitate the patient into their optimal functional level either through the home health or outpatient therapy setting. Whether working as part of a health system or as a private company, Safe Balance identifies risks and decline faster and justifiably bringing patients into your services who require it rather than reactive to expensive hospital stays and permanent functional loss.
