Can I customize the care that is provided to my patient(s)?
To answer in one word, YES. The patients who are typically referred to us do not reflect the majority of pregnant patient population. Therefore, we are very much aware of the need for customizing care to fit the patient in question. We must perform services for which we can seek reimbursement from the patient’s insurance company, as well as performing only those services that do not place the patient, physician, or unborn child at undue risk for serious adverse outcome. This is why patients for home care services need to be carefully selected and screened.
For physicians who typically order several of our services on a regular basis, please ask us to customize these orders to fit your patient population’s needs.
What if I am not sure of the dosing on the various sub-cutaneous pumps for Metoclopramide/Ondansetron?
We expect that many of our physician clients may not remember the dosing of medications that we provide. Therefore, the orders that we send will have typical dosing ranges for the therapies we provide. In addition, we have a pharmacist and board-certified OB/GYN on our staff, who are happy to speak with you regarding dosing for your patient based upon their individual condition.
How often will Healthy Connections’ nurses call me or my office?
Healthy Connections' goal is to provide care to the patient based upon a “best practices” philosophy as well as predicated on the physician’s discretionary orders. Therefore, we will make every effort to use discretion in calling a physician. However, if patients require evaluation on labor & delivery (based upon our home care guidelines) or an order change is necessary to provide patients with better care, we will contact you/your office in the least disruptive way possible.
How does using home care services benefit my office and me?
Healthy Connections’ services decrease the number of phone calls to your office and eliminate the need to hospitalize some of your patients. This offers a great benefit to the compliant patient who would rather be at home with her family during this difficult time. The additional benefit is that our services decrease patient calls to your office. Perhaps one of the biggest benefits is the utilization of health care dollars. Home care is far less expensive, both for patients and society, than prolonged hospitalization. In addition, as we come ever closer to economic credentialing of physicians, these services demonstrate the physician’s economic sensitivity and financial prudence.
