Our Care Model

 
Through GenHealth, GAPN members can access a suite of population health services that support physicians during efforts to improve quality and lower costs.


Transitional Care

We aim to reduce hospital readmissions by using propitery software to identify hospitalized patients and ensuring they get appropriate follow-up appointments after discharge.

Key Elements:

  • Primary care physician is notified of hospital admission
  • Patient is scheduled for a follow-up appointment with PCP within 7-14 days of discharge
  • Discharge summary and medication reconciliation are delivered to PCP prior to appointment
  • Patient is followed by transitional care staff for 30 days to address questions or concerns


 Care Coordination

We utilize a team of nurses and community health workers to support patients with chronic illness and help them avoid complications and hospitalization.
