GOOD SHEPHERD INTEGRATED HEALTHCARE SYSTEMS, LLC.
Good Shepherd Integrated Health Care Systems' goal is to provide continuity of care to patients when they experienced healthcare issues. By integrating home health care services to outpatient rehabilitation treatment, the patient will be seen continuously by our health care professionals until the patient is nursed back to health.
The changing health care environment is more focused on lesser stay at in-patient facilities. Patients are discharged to their homes to recuperate. However, patient care is still very much needed. That is the main focus of Good Shepherd. Our home health professional staff will take care of the patient at the home setting after the patient is discharged from the hospital following a procedure (cardiac, pulmonary or orthopedic). When the patient becomes stable or strong enough, the patient is immediately discharged to continue treatment at our outpatient facilities, whose approach to rehabilitation is more aggressive because the clinics have the proper equipments and monitors. There is continuity of care and monitoring of patients when the patients undergo rehab treatment at our facilities.
This approach to patient care reduces the incidence of re-admission to hospitals because patients are continuously cared for.
