The Amedisys Difference

We pride ourselves on achieving the best possible outcomes and quality of care – whether that involves home health for managing chronic conditions or injury or illness, hospice care to provide end-of-life care and comfort or personal care aimed at helping people remain safe and independent at home.

It’s one reason more than 5,800 hospitals and 24,100 physicians nationwide partner with Amedisys to provide care in the home. But it isn’t the only reason. We also understand the pressures and challenges facing physicians, facilities, hospital systems and other provider organizations.

A few of the reasons our team is uniquely qualified to serve yours:

  • Streamlined referral process: refer by phone, fax or online to save time
  • Care transitions and care coordination
  • Timely patient updates that fit your needs and help you manage patient care
  • Evidence-based programs, protocols and processes to help reduce unnecessary hospitalization
  • Patient engagement and empowerment through individualized patient goals, caregiver integration and comprehensive patient education
  • A clinician is available 24/7 to help your patients, helping reduce after-hours calls to your office

If you have a patient who would benefit from home health care, hospice care or personal care, and would like to know more about the Amedisys difference, please find a care center near you to connect with us. We look forward to hearing from you.
