Saint Francis and Touchpoints - Post Acute Care Network Partnership
To serve our patients better and help them stay well, we are pleased to have been included in the Saint Francis Hospital Post Acute Care Network, offering our patients a specialized post-acute heart failure program in a private, dedicated setting.
Some patients who have been hospitalized following heart failure may be encouraged to stay in a post-acute facility to regain their strength. Our network partnerships ensure that our patients receive rehabilitation services in close collaboration with their medical team within the hospital networks. The key features of this unique approach include:
- The Touchpoints Rehab team has been trained by the hospital network heart failure team. The clinical team follows their established protocols.
- Touchpoints Rehab has an experienced physician and physician extenders on-site for 24/7 care.
The Touchpoints Rehab team includes a dedicated Director of Transitional Care who follows heart failure patients through the course of their care, including after discharge home and provides additional, continuous clinical over- sight and support.
The hospital and Touchpoints Rehab teams remain in continuous communication, working together to ensure a smooth transition. In addition, the hospital team remains informed on the progress of patients’ post-acute stays on a daily basis and continuing through discharge home.
Once discharged, patients are reconnected with their primary care provider through the Heart Failure Clinic.
Touchpoints Rehab staff are skilled in the delivery of all IV treatments and modalities.
- Consultations and daily communication with the hospital team ensure continuity of care and optimal treatment decisions.
- Careful oversight of progress and a quieter, more personal environment are highly conducive to rapid improvements.
