Transitional Care Management Services and Platform

Signallamp’s transitional care management services let your care team streamline transitional care outreach, including scheduling follow-up office appointments, reviewing discharge care plans and making sure any necessary equipment like remote patient monitoring has been received by patients who have recently been discharged.

Handling all of this yourself can strain the capacity of your practices and care teams, resulting in overworked staff, missed transitional care visits and poorer outcomes for patients. Signallamp nurses handle the patient outreach and follow-up care so you can put more time and energy toward providing high-quality care in your hospitals and primary care practices.

See for yourself how Signallamp can make all the difference.

Robust Transitional Care Management Services That Deliver Results and Pay for Themselves

Published studies show that 46% of medication errors occur at a transitional point of care.

Transitional care management, or TCM, is simply care management to help patients make the transition from one care setting to another, though, usually as a result of a discharge from an inpatient hospital. Specific goals for the program include:

  • Adhering to their post-discharge care plan, including filling and taking all of their medications
  • Receiving and using any home health services that were ordered
  • Completing a face-to-face visit with their primary care physician within 30 days of discharge.

Just the act of attempting to initiate that first contact with a patient to engage them in the TCM process has been shown to have significant impact. A study titled “Reducing Readmission Rates Through a Discharge Follow-Up Service”, found that patients who did not receive an “attempt to contact” post-discharge, were predicted to have a hospital readmission at a rate of nearly twice that of patients that did receive an “attempt to contact.”

That’s why we have spent time cracking the code of transitional care. An optimized process delivers results and saves time for everyone.

Here’s How Signallamp’s Transitional Care Management Services Help Your TCM Program to Function
