Access Health Professionals (AHP) is a medical practice that effectively and efficiently focuses on providing primary-care, specialty-care, and long-term acute care services at facilities in Central Indiana.
Access Health Professionals partners with select post-acute facilities to provide a level of oversight that is unprecedented in today’s healthcare market. In today’s healthcare industry, where patients are often discharged from the hospital setting before they are ready to go home, it is important for you to feel comfortable that your facility’s providers are qualified to provide high-level medical direction who can deliver the appropriate interventional care.
Access Health Professionals includes a group of multi-specialty physicians and advance practice providers with significant experience in high-acuity inpatient care, outpatient and post-acute care. We collaborate with multiple sub-specialists to produce the highest level of post-acute care. We are skilled to provide the continuum of care each patient requires on his or her path to recovery, from the hospital setting to the post-acute transition.
Patients under AHP’s care do better. They receive the highest quality of care. We constantly strive to provide the highest value in post-acute health as we target the right level of care, at the right time, for every patient. Those patients that are in facilities for skilled nursing/rehab care have a lower risk of readmission to the hospital and and have a shorter length of stay. Residents who are in the long-term setting receive regular and detailed management of their medical needs. AHP providers are regularly available on-site for patient rounding and provide 24/7 on-call coverage for each patient’s medical management. AHP providers collaborate with each facility’s leadership team to engage in quality programs and education to the nursing and facility staff.
When it comes time for you to choose which facility is best for you or your loved ones, ask your case manager or social worker which facilities partner with Access Health Professionals.
