Every Tuesday, recent hospital discharges come in for an initial screening. They receive:
- Financial Screening
- Social Work Assessment
- Depression Screening
- Medications Review and Prescription Medications
Then, just three days later, on Friday morning, they have their first medical appointment. The new patient has a full medical exam with our Medical Director, Dr. Mike Murchie. They also have a consultation with a volunteer pharmacist and are scheduled for any follow up appointments and specialty visits they might need.
Our social work team also follows up by phone in thirty days to check in on the patient and ensure that all is going well.
This system is a win-win for everyone. The patient receives quality care and one less person is stuck in the cycle of emergency rooms and hospital visits that raise healthcare costs for everyone.
