Landmark Health Extends Medical House Calls to More Patients
Yesterday, Landmark Health introduced a new initiative called Landmark Connect. Landmark Connect is an extension of Landmark’s home-based medical care program. The expansion will provide primary care to patients that reside in assisted living facilities (ALF), independent living facilities (ILF), skilled nursing facilities (SNF), continuing care retirement communities (CCRC), and other long-term care (LTC) facilities.
“With Landmark Connect, we have an exciting opportunity to make a significant difference for patients residing in facilities,” said Adam Boehler, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Landmark. “This allows us to touch more lives, improve care for people who need it the most and truly transform healthcare in our communities.”
Having an expert team of medical professionals on-site results in better monitoring of residents’ conditions and ongoing treatment plans. This type of on-demand care has also been shown to reduce unnecessary trips to the hospital and increase patient satisfaction.
“Our on-site medical teams ensure that we are able to keep everyone informed of any medical needs or changes in condition of residents at the facility,” said Jennifer Gilchrist, President of Landmark Connect. “Our teams also educate the staff and families to deliver more effective care and communication. This highly collaborative work improves the quality of care for patients across the continuum, including care transitions across providers.”
Landmark Connect is currently only available in select facilities. However, patients who reside in one of these contracted facilities can participate in the Landmark program regardless of their insurance.
