Acute Care Services
Acute Care Hospitals
We believe strongly in providing more than clinical talent for our partners. Hospitals partner with EIP to improve performance. Our group strives to enhance clinical care performance and financial performance. Providers of acute hospital care increasingly need to recognize the demands of the various stakeholders, evaluate the financial implications of a changing healthcare industry, and adjust their practices accordingly.
Patients, payers, and other practitioners can affect financial performance. Our hospitalist leadership works closely with hospital administrators to meet the challenges of an evolving healthcare industry while maintaining quality patient care.
One of Essex’s focuses is providing hospitalist services which align clinician practice with performance goals:
– Performance alignment
– Quality improvement
– Transitions of care support
– Practice management
– Standardized care
Long-Term Acute Care Hospitals
Essex Inpatient Physicians provides strong continuity of care by placing our clinicians in traditional acute care hospitals and long-term acute care facilities. Our presence in acute care facilities assists LTACHs in admitting appropriate patients and limiting preventable hospital readmissions. We work with case management at both the acute hospital and LTCAH to support appropriate transitions of care.
Our group also recognizes the importance of documentation to an LTACHs financial performance. We work closely with staff to ensure patient acuity is accurately documented and to avoid uncompensated days. One of our goals is to document properly in order to support our partners in realizing the case mix that appropriately reflects the acuity of patient care.
