The ABC’s of Care Coordination
Even before a patient leaves the hospital, J&D Ultracare is on the job working with the family, physician, insurance case manager and hospital discharge planner to ensure a smooth transition to home care.
Once at home, coordinating the many services involved in delivering comprehensive care can be overwhelming. J&D Ultracare assumes this burden by helping families navigate the complex and often confusing worlds of health care providers and funding sources until they are ready to handle the process themselves.
