As COVID-19 continues across North Texas, Resilient Healthcare, a leader in the at-home acute care space, has partnered with Medical City Healthcare, one of the most comprehensive healthcare providers in North Texas, to deliver high-acuity care in the home.
The partnership is significant as Medical City Healthcare is the first network of hospitals in Texas to receive approval from the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to participate in the Acute Hospital at Home Program, which allows qualifying patients with certain conditions to receive high-acuity care in their homes. At-home care is supported by 24/7 remote monitoring, daily provider visits and other necessary support. Resilient Healthcare will deliver at-home care on behalf of Medical City Healthcare hospitals in North Texas. Patients can only be admitted to the program from emergency departments or inpatient hospital beds and admission requires an in-person physician evaluation prior to starting services at home.
"As we have done throughout the pandemic, Medical City Healthcare's preparedness response has been to balance our readiness to care for COVID-19 patients while continuing to make sure the many other patients who depend on our hospitals receive needed and timely care," says Medical City Healthcare Chief Medical Officer Joseph Parra, MD. "The partnership with Resilient allows us to continue to provide excellent and compassionate care outside the hospital walls for patients who qualify."
Hospital-Grade Care in the Home at a Glance
Once at home, qualifying patients will receive all the necessary diagnostic and medical treatments they would receive during a typical hospital stay including imaging, labs, IV and oral medications, home nursing and therapy, virtual doctor visits and continuous telemetry and monitoring.
"Our patient-centered model opens up inpatient beds to allow for higher-acuity care while providing high-quality care in the comfort of the patient's home. That is a benefit for patients, families, hospitals and insurers."
