Managing your health: be proactive to reduce your chances of a hospital stay

Posted on July 26, 2012



A new study is out that reinforces current thinking about home health care.

  • Providing home health care for longer periods of time following a hospital stay and providing disease management education as part of this care can reduce hospital readmissions.
  • Providing in-home treatment for patients and offering chronic disease management as part of that care could prevent  patients from going to the hospital in the first place.

This type of in-home care is not covered by Medicare but may be by Long Term Care Insurance.  The required care does not need to be expensive and the benefits to your health immeasurable.

BrightStar has been on the cutting edge of this type of care and has programs developed that will fit your requirements.  Give us a call so we can discuss your situation.
