Telemedicine Meeting the Evolving Needs Of LTACH Patients.
Long-term acute care hospitals (LTACHs) are acute care hospitals that serve patients with complex needs requiring longer hospital stays and highly specialized care. LTACHs are designed for patients who need intense care for an average of greater than 25 days. The number of LTACHs has continued to increase over the last two decades as a response to the growing patient population and have reached over 450 long-term acute care hospitals nationwide.
A typical LTACH patient requires one or more of the following
- Dialysis for chronic renal failure
- Ventilator weaning or prolonged use
- Intense respiratory care
- Complex wound care
- Prolonged medical care with IV medications or transfusions
LTACHs across the United States are operated as a mix of non-profit and for-profit hospitals and all focus on quality, outcomes, and patient care and satisfaction. With new technology and innovative health-care delivery methods via telemedicine, we will provide patient-centric care and services to your LTACH at a fraction of the cost of an in-house physician.
