Share

Integrace Bayleigh Chase, and Amedisys Home Health in Cambridge, have announced a new preferred provider partnership to serve Talbot County and the surrounding communities. Under the agreement, the two organizations will work together to establish a more structured and coordinated process for transitioning individuals from the short-term rehabilitation program at Bayleigh Chase to their homes, with continued monitoring and care from Amedisys. Together, the two organizations hope to reduce the number of hospital admissions and readmissions and help improve the overall health of the greater community.

Integrace Bayleigh Chase provides physical, occupational, and speech language pathology services for those recovering from cardiovascular, neurological or orthopedic disorders, including stroke, hip fracture, joint replacement or other medical conditions. Amedisys Home Health currently serves more than 250 patients throughout Talbot and Dorchester Counties, providing a comprehensive array of in-home medical services to those recovering from surgery or illness, or living with an on-going condition such as diabetes or cardiac disease.

As partners, the Bayleigh Chase and Amedisys teams will collect and share data to track the condition and progress of each individual in their care, including metrics such as hospital admissions, mobility, and ability to independently perform daily tasks, such as dressing, feeding or bathing. A transitional care nurse from Bayleigh Chase will attend patient care coordination meetings with Amedisys to ensure smooth transitions, and will continue to work with the home-care team and primary care physician after individuals return home to ensure they continue to make progress. All care will be overseen by medical director Paul Reinbold, M.D., C.M.D.

“We always want to ensure we are doing all we can to keep our community healthy, and that includes creating partnerships with other care providers who have the same mission and vision,” said Andrea Lev, Executive Director, Integrace Bayleigh Chase. “This partnership with Amedisys will create an unparalleled continuum of care for our patients to better support them and their families in dealing with health challenges. Ultimately, our hope is to work collectively and proactively to avoid unnecessary complications and produce more positive outcomes.”

“We have always had a great relationship with the team at Bayleigh Chase, and we are excited to now formalize our partnership to better meet the needs of our community,” said Christopher Worm, Director of Operations, Amedisys Home Health. “We know that people want to be able to stay healthy and independent as long as they can, and we now have a program in place to help more people achieve this successfully.”
