Medigy: Post-Acute Referrals

Post-acute referrals refer to the transfer of patients from one healthcare setting to another after they have received acute medical treatment. This can occur when a patient no longer requires the services of an acute care hospital, but still needs additional care before being discharged to their home or a rehabilitation facility. Some common types of post-acute referrals in healthcare include:

Skilled nursing facilities (SNFs): For patients needing rehabilitation, wound care, or long-term nursing care.

Home health agencies (HHAs): For patients needing in-home care, such as physical therapy or wound care.

Inpatient rehabilitation facilities (IRFs): For patients with complex medical needs requiring intensive rehabilitation services.

Hospice and palliative care: For patients with a terminal illness, who need end-of-life care and support for both the patient and their family.

Post-acute referrals are an important part of the continuum of care for patients who need ongoing treatment and support after an acute illness or injury. They help ensure that patients receive the right level of care in the appropriate setting, promoting recovery and improving overall outcomes.
