When you’re released from the hospital after a procedure or medical event, the first few weeks that follow can make or break your healing.

Legacy Care’s new Transitional Care Management care model provides 1:1 support for patients at high risk for returning to the hospital because of an unforeseen complication. In this episode, Yolanda Hoag, Legacy Care’s transitional care advanced practice provider, and Julie Miller, Legacy Care’s Chief Compliance Officer, discuss how Legacy Care’s new Transitional Care Model:

  • Shreds Cost: eliminates expensive patient readmission penalties and optimizes length of stay
