The Care Assist Program
Our program was developed to ensure pre and post operative care coordination for patients receiving elective outpatient surgery, by reducing potential barriers to care and increasing patient awareness.
IHD believes in the value of a proactive approach and is committed to providing real time support to patients and their families allowing them the best opportunity for recovery.
Care Assist Model
Our model is based on a comprehensive and proactive patient centered approach to healthcare delivery that begins before surgery and continues through post operative treatment. In order to facilitate a smooth recovery, early intervention and care coordination is initiated prior to surgery. Adopting a progressive management strategy for elective surgeries reduces disruptions in post operative care, identifies barriers to accessing care, and adds a layer of support to patients that is currently missing in the outpatient setting.
