Education & Resources

Transitional Care Consulting

We are all more than aware of how our rural residents are underserved.  If they happen to be overcoming a life threatening illness or accident, they are almost certain to need costly rehabilitative services.  Add to that fact that many of our rural healthcare facilities already have limited resources.

There is an answer. Introducing Allevant Solutions, LLC. This consulting company assists rural hospitals and skilled nursing homes to care for a broader, more complex patient group by helping staff learn new methodologies, algorithms and processes such as high-quality transitional care and vent care.  With Allevant, rural facilities can keep more local patients, increase post-acute care offerings, reduce costs and become a new kind of discharge destination.

The concept is based on a highly successful transitional care program by
Mayo Clinic Health System that included 11 hospitals in rural America.
The program was initiated by pulmonologist Mark Lindsay, M.D., who
led a team that systematically filled a desperate need for high quality
post-acute care outside metropolitan areas. This work became the major
inspiration for Allevant Solutions.

In addition to the cost savings, participating hospitals benefit from improved communication, enhanced outpatient services, stronger referral relationships and improved patient outcomes.
