Improving Patient Outcomes One Joint Replacement at a Time
The Home Health Orthopedic Model for Excellence (HHOME) is a specialized orthopedic care program offered by the Advantage team. This revolutionary service offers orthopedic consulting services to hospitals and home health care providers to treat post-acute-care patients in need of joint replacements and hip replacement recovery.
HHOME Program provides pre- and post-op hip replacement nursing care for adults across the state of Pennsylvania, ensuring that they receive the highest quality, comprehensive orthopedic care throughout their recovery from a joint replacement.
What is HHOME?
Our HHOME consulting services take into account the full spectrum of orthopedic care, from pre-surgery through rehabilitation and recovery. Two weeks before surgery, a Home Assessment Coordinator will come out and perform a home safety assessment in addition to providing fall prevention evaluations and education to your family member or resident. We will also ensure your surgeon and orthopedic home health care therapists work hand-in-hand prior to your surgery to provide you with an individualized and comprehensive post-operative treatment plan.
Joint Replacement Surgery Post-Operative Care
At Advantage, we understand that joint replacement surgery is an involved procedure that often comes along with a long and demanding recovery period. However, a combination of same-day joint replacement surgery and our HHOME program may provide you with the solution you have been looking for.
Same-day joint replacement surgery not only involves less pain and scarring than traditional joint replacement surgery procedures, but it also allows for a shorter and less intense recovery period. Eligible patients will be discharged the same day as their surgery, and the Advantage Home Health team will provide all the necessary post-operative care necessary. This allows patients to recover from their surgery in their entirety from the comfort and convenience of their very own homes.
Three Pillars of HHOME
HHOME is centered around three pillars that make up the foundation of the model. These three pillars include the S.A.F.E is Better process, the care path methodology, and taking advantage of our use of analytics.
Stratified Assessment for Excellence (S.A.F.E.) is Better
S.A.F.E. is Better is the process that allows us at Advantage to assess patient risk levels and home health care options for optimal effectiveness of same-day joint replacement surgeries. This phase of the HHOME program allows the entire team to have a process in place to mitigate any adverse events, such as complications, ER visits, and hospital readmissions. The ultimate goal of the S.A.F.E is Better process is to identify whether your loved one is at a high risk of complications and mitigate those complications before they arise.
Care Path Methodology
This exclusive and proprietary approach to health care utilizes team-based care to ensure patients receive the appropriate post-operative care for their individual needs. Whether your loved one has undergone total knee replacement surgery or hip replacement surgery, our care path methodology ensures patients receive comprehensive care with a multidisciplinary team of supportive medical professionals. Our evidence-based practices and cutting-edge solutions provide the patient with maximum benefits at minimal financial and health-related costs.
At Advantage, we take all analytics into account to ensure you and your family members get the highest-quality outcomes from home health care with us. Data surrounding same-day joint-replacement surgeries are captured and analyzed to better predict all patient outcomes and success rates. We also take into account cost-per-patient savings. In addition, we take into account S.A.F.E. scores and age to provide your loved ones with an accurate representation of their rehabilitative process.
Advantage was recently honored by HEALTH CAREfirst for HHCAHPS Honors, which is a prestigious annual review that recognizes home health agencies that provide quality care to patients. It recognizes the highest performing agencies by analyzing their performance of Home Health Consumer Assessment of Health care Providers and Systems (HHCAHPS) satisfaction measures.
