The WakeMed Home Health Advantage

Our affiliation with WakeMed has advantages not found with other home care agencies. We provide our patients with access to WakeMed clinical experts, such as our diabetic teaching staff, nutritionists, and orthopaedic and neurological specialists. We also facilitate seamless transitions from hospital to home by working side by side with the patient’s discharge planning team at WakeMed.

Our interdisciplinary coordination of services fosters timely and effective care management. Because WakeMed is connected to qualified, medical education facilities, we have access to the latest, most up-to-date treatments, procedures, techniques and clinical education. We utilize many technological advantages including tele-health daily status monitoring.

Expert Staff & Services

We pride ourselves on our highly skilled, experienced and specially trained staff members who have all the qualifications and medical expertise to deliver professional, competent care to patients. We employ staff with home health backgrounds. Our staff members are bonded and insured. We do extensive background checks, including licensure and certification that is kept current and updated annually.

Because our health care professionals are focused on meeting the medical and rehabilitation needs of patients, they do not provide such services as house cleaning, food preparation and transportation.

At WakeMed Home Health, we employ expert clinicians who are true advocates for their patients.

Our patients receive care from people who are interested in promoting their comfort and safety. Most importantly, our staff serves as a link between the patient’s physician and family, and keeps the patient informed of his or her progress.

Continuity of Care in the Comfort of Home

WakeMed Home Health professionals file patients’ insurance claims and handle all the paperwork. If a patient meets all the necessary strict criteria, the federal Medicare and state Medicaid programs could cover his or her home health care. We have experienced staff to help the patient understand his or her insurance coverage.
