Care-A-Medix

Chronic Care for High-Risk Patients

Care-A-Medix enables physicians with value-based managed care contracts to reduce costly and unnecessary ER visits and hospitalizations through our unique, affordable home paramedicine program.

Problem

Medicare Advantage

Physicians caring for Medicare Advantage plan members experience a high volume of costly ER visits and hospitalizations that occur between patient visits to the clinical office.


Hospitals and ACOs

Hospital and ACO affiliated population health physicians are trying to prevent their high-utilizer patients from using the most expensive treatment sites over and over each year.


Employer Medical Clinics

Doctors working in self-insured employer site-based medical clinics are missing employees who choose not to visit the clinic but are at high risk for medical complications that drive ER visits and hospitalizations.

Feature

Medicare Advantage

Frequent home visits by the paramedic to the patient's home enables clinical and home living conditions assessment, disease management, and self-care education.


Hospitals and ACOs

Weekly home visits by the paramedic keeps the physicians aware of any changes in their patient's clinical condition or living environment in time to preventively address them.


Employer Medical Clinics

For employees that never visit the company-funded medical clinic, paramedics expand care into the home to identify health risks, provide preventive support, and connect the patient to the resources the employer has arranged.

Benefit

Medicare Advantage

Capture more value-based compensation by reducing expensive ER visits and hospital readmissions (Care-A-Medix example: 20% to 6%) while improving patient care through home-extended visits.

 

Hospitals and ACOs

Reduced ER visits and hospitalizations improve the likelihood that physicians will be able to achieve the IHI Triple Aim: population health, patient experience, and per-capita cost.


Employer Medical Clinics

Employers see a significant improvement in the return on investment for their site-based medical clinic investment as more employees receive preventive health care at home.

About Us

Emergency Medical Service (EMS) paramedics respond by ambulance to homes to stabilize, support, and transfer patients exhibiting acute distress to the nearest emergency department.


Many EMS services use community paramedics to reduce frequent repeat 911 calls from patients with high-risk medical conditions.


Care-A-Medix home paramedics schedule home visits to:

  • Assess the health status and the living environment for medical office patients living with chronic health conditions like CHF, COPD, CKD, Diabetes, and Hypertension.
  • Provide self-care education using resources that reinforce that provided by the care team in the medical office.
  • Deliver disease management until the medical office, patient, caregiver, and paramedic agree that the patient is ready to manage his or her chronic health condition.

Our Results

As of August 1, 2021, we have cared for over 550 patients with over 2,000 home visits.  Our same cause hospital readmission rate remains under 6% in counties with a CMS Medicare rate of 19%.  Our Net Promoter Score has reached 100 in 2021Our documented services at just one hospital enabled its CHF clinic to avoid expenses totaling $150,000 in the first 12 months. 

Where measured by avoided hospital readmissions, all our programs are showing a favorable Return on Investment.  See for yourself.

Care-A-Medix was designed to care for those in your practice, plan, or workplace that need home disease management and self-care education to reduce ER visits, hospitalizations and rapid return to the hospital.

Preventive Care Management for Higher Risk Patients

The initial visit assessment for a new patient includes vital signs, medication reconciliation, falls risk, depression risk, pantry and nutrition check, review of the home condition and identification of any social needs.   Visit documentation is made to the referring medical office upon completion.  Any number of visits may be scheduled over any length of time depending on the needs of the patient, the referring physician, or the payer.  Home labs, post-surgical care, and other services are available.

Clinical Consults with On-Site Health Assessment and Interventions

Paramedics carry cell-enabled iPad Pro tablets and smart phones equipped with HIPAA compliant telehealth capability.  With the home paramedic on site, receive a complete patient and living environment assessment before connecting for a face-to-face counseling session.  Physicians, nurses, social workers, mental health counselors, pharmacists, physical therapists and other clinicians are able to interact with the patient with the paramedic on-site to assist.

Makes sure people have the resources they need after they get out of the hospital.


It's nice to have someone come check on you an​d talk to you.  I am happy and I will miss having James coming to visit me.

What Our Clients Say

She was most thankful to our Home Paramedic James who had cared for her not just as a patient but as a dear friend.

AdventHealth Altamonte Hospital


(Home paramedic) Marcus was able to facilitate getting that patient seen immediately to address the hematoma, and start the patient on antibiotics to treat the wound.

Orlando Health South Seminole Hospital


Educating the patients with resources available to them and that they are not aware of, giving them that sense of trust that you really care for their well-being and asking tough questions to get to the bottom of other issues is a big win not only for the providers but also for the patients.
