iConsult can assist with transitioning the patient from inpatient hospitalization to their community setting.
After a hospitalization or other inpatient facility stay, the patient may be dealing with a new diagnosis, a change to medication, or an unfamiliar medical issue. iConsult can assist with providing the patient with the necessary care to help the patient transition in a safe, efficient manner.
iConsult’s TCM program can assist with reducing hospital readmission rates by providing care immediately following the patient discharge. This will prevent unnecessary readmissions with simple management of the patient.
