Medically complex patients represent a small, but consequential portion of America’s patient population that can put strain on the nation’s health system if not treated in the proper setting. In order to improve outcomes and lower total costs of care, provider networks must be able to identify these patients and determine the most effective and efficient care delivery pathway for them. A recently-published HealthLeaders e-Book explores some of today’s chronic illnesses and comorbidities and explains why LTACHs are often the most appropriate setting to treat such conditions.

In this e-Book, you will read:

  • Your Guide to Post-COVID Patient Types and Recovery: Differences Between PICS and Long-Haulers
  • Reducing Readmissions for Complex Pulmonary Patients Through LTACH Expertise
