Care Coordination may include connecting our clients with community resources and mobilize services.
When appropriate, we can refer to mobilize service such as mobile x-ray, draw labs for blood work or urine samples, wound care, durable medical equipment (hospital bed, portable oxygen etc). Refer and coordinate with specialists and other services (home health, palliative care, hospice) as needed.
We triage your concern to determine which course of action may be recommended for you. Symptoms such as for cough or bladder infections can usually be evaluated and work up can be initiated at home. There may be symptoms for which we need to refer you to urgent care or the emergency room.
Some conditions and symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath, severe abdominal pain, intractable vomiting, high fever, dehydration, lethargy or change in mental status, sudden weakness are a few examples of life threatening conditions which may need an evaluation in the Emergency Room or need to call 911.
