TriStar Health, NHC form alliance
TriStar Health and National HealthCare Corporation announce an alliance that aims to provide patients across Middle Tennessee with a continually higher level of care as they transition from hospitals to recovery.
The organizations will work together to devise new practices and protocols not only to streamline the discharge process but also to help post-acute facilities, like skilled nursing facilities and home healthcare workers more effectively manage and treat conditions. Both organizations will develop integrated intervention strategies that will span the transition of patients' care from acute to post-acute care and vice versa.
NHC employees will educate TriStar staff on post-acute care eligibility requirements while TriStar will educate NHC caregivers on hospital discharge procedures. Both organizations will also work on identifying new ways to enhance post-acute care for patients.
