The Accelera Business
The most common hospital setting in America is one that provides short-term acute care for patients with pressing health issues – emergencies or surgeries brought on by illness or an accident. The immediate objective is to stabilize the patient and begin the recovery process.
For many of these patients, however, a quick recovery is unrealistic. They need continued care – post-acute care. At Accelera, we continue the care for our patients or residents in sites of service across the post-acute spectrum. Our expertise across this spectrum allows us to achieve our goal of helping patients recover to the fullest by providing care in the proper care setting.
We provide post-acute care through:
- Our rehabilitation services business, which helps patients get their lives back by providing physical and occupational therapy and speech-language pathology.
- Home health care, which offers medical services, including wound care and rehabilitation therapy, provided in the comfort of your home, wherever you live.
- Hospice, a family-oriented model of care designed to meet the spiritual, emotional and physical needs of patients in life’s final season.
The American Hospital Association developed a report that discusses the value of post-acute care in the healthcare continuum and explores how post-acute care providers can serve as important partners – both for acute-care hospitals and for one another – in improving quality and reducing costs over an episode of care. According to the report, partnerships across settings not only benefit patients transitioning to a post-acute site, but can also benefit general acute-care hospitals referring to and receiving referrals from post-acute care. As a provider of post-acute care services, Accelera Innovations is well positioned to work with other healthcare services providers.
