Our specialty services include a wide range of Chronic Care Management programs:
Cardio CareLink: This program was developed to empower and assist the patient and caregiver
in managing the disease process in the home setting while improving the
overall quality of life. We monitor patients throughout treatment and,
when appropriate, utilize telehealth to improve care. This system allows
you to send your vital sign data daily and provides us the up-to-date
information about your condition that we need.
Diabetic CareLink: Designed for both Diabetes Type 1 and Type 2, this program assists the
patient, your caregiver, and your multidisciplinary health care team through
the use of evidence based guidelines and standards of care. Services include
a multi-disciplinary approach to care and identification of community
resources to provide support for you.
Ortho CareLink: This is a comprehensive program to provide a consistent, therapeutic plan
for recovery and rehabilitation following total joint replacement or other
orthopedic surgery. It includes comprehensive therapy schedule, physician
specific care protocols, a trained and dedicated clinical team, and patient
education – with a focus on continuity of care across the continuum.
Pulmonary CareLink: This is a home care program for patients suffering from chronic obstructive
lung disease (COPD) and pneumonia. The program includes multiple disciplines
such as skilled nursing, therapy services, social services, and home health
aides to optimize functional status and quality of life, and we tailor
the frequency of visits to the individual patient’s risk, symptoms,
and severity of a disease.
Our home care services are available in Knox, Daviess, Gibson, Sullivan,
Pike, and Greene counties. We provide the care and services you need to
recover, all in the comfort of your home.
