We Work With Healthcare Professionals To Provide Improved & Safe Outcomes For Patients
According to an article published by AOTA (2016), CMS spends approximately $26 billion on hospital readmissions, 65% of which are estimated to be preventable. Aside from improving hospital discharge care, a significant focus on reducing patient readmissions is in prevention – this starts in the home.
Thrive For Life works closely with insurance companies to ensure patients are given the right level of care throughout the discharge process. From hospital, to liaising with 3rd party payers and ensuring the home modifications installed support the independence and safety of the patient.
Healthcare Professionals -
Case Managers, Service Coordinators, Discharge Planners, Social Workers
As occupational therapists and home modification specialists, we understand how to ensure patients have their medical and safety needs met first and foremost. We work with other healthcare professionals to ensure patients are given the appropriate level of support from discharge through living in their home. Consider us an extension of your discharge planning process.
Enhancing Outcomes, Decreasing Healthcare Costs
At Thrive For Life, our services extend beyond occupational therapy and home modifications. We work closely with discharge planners, case managers, insurance companies, and social workers to improve health outcomes for all. That means reducing readmissions and getting patients home safely, in less time.
In fact, Medical Care Research and Review (2016) found that “occupational therapy is the only spending category where additional spending has a statistically significant association with lower readmission rates.” This study (click here) demonstrates that occupational therapy can have a direct impact on reducing hospital readmissions through many strategies including home modifications.
Third Party Payers: Medicaid, Workman’s Compensation, Auto Insurance, Disability Trusts, and Healthcare Insurance Companies
Nationwide Accessibility Expertise You Can Depend On
Our expertise in comprehensive approach that includes project management solutions are what position our services so uniquely. From an initial comprehensive accessibility assessment to identifying equipment specifications, re-designing spaces for access; we support the entire home modification process. We also provide virtual accessibility services nationwide.
We can also review and audit reports and recommendations provided by other service providers to ensure they are making accurate recommendations and containing costs based on the clients’ specific medical needs.
Third Party Accessibility Consulting Services
This program are suitable for health insurance companies, state Medicaid waiver programs, disability trusts, auto insurance, and workman’s compensation and insurance plans to include the management of these services, and bid procurement.
Once we have identified your client’s medical needs, we are then able to put together a bid package and have contractors provide estimates on the same scope of work, specifications, and building plans. This ensures that the contractors are bidding apples to apples and not what they individually think is needed for a client. Contractors are simply not able to provide the correct recommendations for clients who have complex medical needs. On occasion, a contractor may under or overestimate the needs and specifications; our involvement can play a vital role in improving outcomes and reducing unnecessary costs.
