HOW IT WORKS
- Home Health services are discussed with the patient and doctor (at the hospital, primary care physician, specialist, etc.)
- Doctor or staff contacts Pemi-Baker Community Health with a “Doctor’s Order” for home health services
- Pemi-Baker contacts the patient to confirm the address, insurance, services to be provided, and sets an initial in-home appointment
- Patient receives an initial in-home visit and health evaluation from their case manager (one of our Nurses or Therapists) who works with the patient to create a plan of care to address the healthcare needs-including a plan for which services are required, how often, and for how long
- Pemi-Baker contacts the doctor to inform them of the in-home evaluation and obtain agreement / sign-off on the determined plan of care
- Our team works with the patient according to the goals, frequency, and treatments outlined in the initial plan of care and partners with the patient and doctor to update the plan of care if/when needed
- Patient progresses toward independence and wellness as they receive care from the best in-home healthcare team in New Hampshire
