Health at Home by Baptist Health offers home-based services that provide patients with exceptional treatment backed by the state’s most trusted name in care, all from the comfort of home. From chronic disease management to post-hospitalization recovery, home-based services give patients unparalleled access to the care they need most.
When most people think of healthcare, they think of a building where it is provided: the hospital, physician’s office or outpatient center. However, your home can also be a place for the provision of healthcare services. Home health is often an extension of the care you receive after discharge from a hospital or rehabilitation facility. In some situations, you may already be at home, and your physician believes you need one or more of our services to keep you out of the hospital or to monitor your progress.
It’s important to note that home health may be necessary at any age and may be needed for only a short time or an extended period.
When it’s challenging to leave your home for medical services, we come to you and provide what you need in the privacy and comfort of your home. By sending medical professionals into your home, we can personalize the care we offer and customize it to your home environment.
Complications can be prevented for some patients by monitoring their vital signs daily with a Telehealth unit placed in their homes. This cutting-edge technology is part of our standard of care and is provided at no cost to the patient. This technology allows early identification of developing problems and may prevent an unnecessary trip to the Emergency Room and/or rehospitalization. Home Health can also provide an alternative to hospitalization or reduce the length of stay in the hospital by allowing the patient to discharge home earlier than they could without the continuing service home health provides.
