Healthcare@Home:
one-stop, personalized, home-based healthcare from Allegheny Health Network.

There’s no place like home.

It’s where we feel safe, comfortable, and in control. Being at home—wherever home may be—can make all the difference in the world when dealing with an ongoing medical condition, injury, or accident.

Allegheny Health Network is making it easy to get the care you need at home with several integrated services called Healthcare@Home. With just one phone call, personalized home based care can be arranged by your physician for you or your loved ones to help maintain independence and continue the healing process at home for as long as possible.

“Healthcare@Home is a great enhancement for patients and their caregivers,” says Dr. Brian Holzer, Senior Vice President, Diversified Services for the Allegheny Health Network. “Patients and their caregivers not only have access to the medical services needed to deliver high quality, personalized care in the home, but everyone is working together to create a differentiated patient experience.”

After discharge from a hospital stay or simply when recovering at home, patients are typically referred by their physicians to several different and unconnected providers of home-based medical services and equipment. Caregivers were often tasked with setting up the care and, when needs changed, the providers, services, and equipment changed, which resulted in frustration for the patients and caregivers and poor care for the patient.

“With the Allegheny Health Network Healthcare@Home program, you’re working with just one organization,” says Holzer. “We provide patients and their caregivers a dedicated and caring team that will work with their physician to facilitate the transitions from the hospital to home and personalize the care each patient receives. And when healthcare needs change, there is no added inconvenience to the patient (like switching out medical equipment). Our team will help manage the care plan to meet patients’ needs—no one should ever feel like they are out there all alone.”

Once your physician makes the phone call, your personal care coordinator will be your link to the services that you or your loved ones need. A team of caring professionals—physicians, experienced nurses, social workers, etc.—is assembled and dedicated to making you feel safe, supported, and well cared for in your home and community. In addition to your personalized care team, you’ll have access to Allegheny Health Network’s team of more than 2,100 skilled physicians. Healthcare@Home services are accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week and offers seamless, coordinated care.

The Allegheny Health Network Healthcare@Home program brings together a number of different medical services that often are not coordinated.
