Identifies and Escalates
Changes in Condition

Through Nexus Health Call Center we educate the patient on disease-specific yellow and red flag symptoms and the specific activities to stay healthy. If changes in clinical condition occur, we immediately escalate concerns to a designated member of your clinical team.


Supports Quality and
Organizational Goals

We will incorporate your patient-specific satisfaction and experience questions into our call to help your organization identify areas for improvement. Our care coordinators take an active role in referring patients to other services within your care network.

By bridging that gap between skilled nursing facility and home, Nexus Health Resources allowed us to capture more referrals to our TheraCare Home Health network. This not only improved the patient experience and quality of care, but it provided a return on investment for Cantex Continuing Care.

Some of Our Success Stories

Name: Mary
Age: 77
Condition(s): Hip Replacement

During a routine 48-hour discharge call it was discovered that the patient had not received the prescribed Durable Medical Equipment (DME). A Nexus Health transitional care coordinator initiated a three-way phone call with the DME company to determine why the equipment was not delivered. The issue was resolved and delivery was scheduled for later that day, which allowed the patient to ambulate and work toward recovery.

Name: Tom
Age: 72
Condition(s): CHF

During a 1-week interval discharge call the patient shared that he was having difficulty with bathing. Nexus Health assisted in securing a handicap shower stool and having it delivered to the house.

Name: Chuck
Age: 82
Condition(s): CHF

At two weeks post discharge, Nexus Health transitional care coordinator phoned Chuck to see how things were progressing and asked if he had been weighing himself daily as directed; he admitted he had not weighed himself in a few days. When asked to weigh himself during the call, Chuck reported a 4-pound weight gain. Nexus Health initiated a three-way phone call with Chuck’s primary care physician and the care plan was updated to include a diuretic. Additionally, Nexus Health reinforced the discharge instructions, including a review of Chuck’s low-sodium diet requirements. The quick intervention on weight gain helped to avoid a readmission.

Name: Bruce
Age: 65
Condition(s): CHF, Diabetes

Nexus Health contacted Bruce one week after being discharged with a pneumonia diagnosis. During the call, the patient reported that his blood glucose levels were high. Nexus Health assisted Bruce with securing a same-day appointment with his primary care physician.

Name: Betty
Age: 76
Condition(s): Pneumonia

When following up with Betty 24 hours after discharge, it was discovered that her local pharmacy was out the prescribed antibiotic and she was waiting to hear back. Knowing that without the medication the patient was likely to readmit, Nexus Health transitional care coordinator initiated a three-way call with the pharmacy and Betty to secure the antibiotic. The pharmacist was able to secure the antibiotic from a sister location, thereby reducing the risk of readmission.

Name: Anthony
Age: 77
Condition(s): Knee Replacement

Nexus Health followed up with Anthony 24 hours after discharge from a knee replacement procedure. It was discovered that Anthony had not made an appointment with his primary care doctor because he was unable to drive and didn’t have access to transportation. Nexus Health assisted with securing an appointment with his primary care physician as well as transportation to and from the appointment through a local church volunteer group.
