Post-Hospital Discharge Q & A

What is post-hospital discharge?

Post-hospital discharge is a service you can take advantage of once you return home from the hospital. When you leave the hospital, your primary care provider, specialists, hospital nurses, and physicians coordinate your care.

Many patients require ongoing care once they return home. With mobile services and house calls, the Mobile Doctor Medical Clinic team ensures you continue to receive comprehensive care from the moment you leave the hospital and transition back into your routine.

What are the benefits of post-hospital discharge?

Post-hospital discharge supports your health care needs after you return home from the hospital. Having professional aftercare can help minimize your risk of readmission to the hospital and accelerate your recovery. Studies show that patients are less likely to readmit to the hospital if they have post-hospital follow-up care.

What does post-hospital discharge involve?

Post-hospital discharge can include a wide range of services, depending on your specific needs and recovery goals. These services may include:

House calls
