GROUP EXECUTIVE BENEFITS & PROVIDER RELATIONS nib (2013-2020)
Vitalis was an essential component to the successful launch of nib’s discharge support in 2016 and also helped us expand and augment our chronic disease management programs for complex cases.
Since 2016, Vitalis’ telephonic programs have been delivering outstanding results, with substantial reductions in avoidable hospital admissions, improved clinical outcomes and consistently positive feedback from patients.
VITALIS ARE SPECIALISTS AT NAVIGATING THE HEALTH AND CARE SYSTEM.
We understand that many instances of poor health and hospitalisations result from incomplete knowledge and access to fragmented services, and work with stakeholders across the system to bridge these gaps.
Evidence supports that managing the transition from hospital to home is an essential part of patient recovery and a return to good health. However, many patients leave hospital without enough support, information or follow-up to manage this transition well, increasing their risk of readmission and poor health outcomes.
This is particularly the case where patients have one or more chronic diseases, or where factors such disability, advanced age, or social isolation are present.
Recurrent and avoidable hospitalisations (including excessive length of stay) are costly for public and private health funders, for patients and their families, for employers, and for the health system in general.
RESEARCH SHOWS THAT SUPPORTING PATIENTS AND THEIR CAREGIVERS TO BE MORE INFORMED AND PROACTIVE IN MANAGING THEIR HEALTH AND CARE NEEDS REDUCES THE FREQUENCY OF AVOIDABLE HOSPITALISATIONS, AS WELL AS IMPROVES OVERALL HEALTH OUTCOMES AND MARKEDLY INCREASES PATIENT SATISFACTION.
