2023 Together - P417 - Alternative Sites of Care: Nontraditional Solutions to Hospital Discharge Barriers - On Demand
The COVID-19 pandemic forced the healthcare industry to deliver care in ways no one imagined. Not only were healthcare systems forever changed, but so were the lives of patients. Gone are the days of a standard hospitalization and multiple options when the time came for discharge, as well as the practice approach to which our providers were accustomed. With implementation of three alternative site-of-care programs (medical respite, direct pay beds at nursing facilities and paramedicine initiative), we have found ways to successfully address delays in discharge, reduce hospital readmissions and improve the patient experience.
