Contessa Health arranges and manages the services required to deliver hospital-level care in the patient’s home with our proprietary clinical model, ContessaCare™. Given the episodic nature of our clinical pathways, we are only reimbursed in a prospective bundled payment. To prevent disrupting other value-based programs, we manage these episodes of care on behalf of our commercial and Medicare Advantage health plan partners.
ContessaCare™ utilizes two pathways for patient care. The patient can be directly admitted to our home hospitalization program following screening by our Care Coordinator at a health system entry point. Alternatively, the patient can utilize the program as step down unit, where the patient can be admitted into the home hospitalization program after an acute care stay.
The video below illustrates the pathways for patients and our partners in the home hospitalization program:
