At Novant Health Thomasville Medical Center, we recognize that taking care of your health following your discharge from the hospital
can be challenging.
Because we are concerned about our patients' well-being, Thomasville Medical Center has launched TMC to Home to help patients
recently admitted to the hospital successfully care for themselves once discharged.
A specially-trained nurse case manager will be assigned to eligible patients to
help them make a successful transition from the hospital.
Who is Eligible
The program is designed to assist patients who have recently been admitted to the
hospital with congestive heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease/emphysema (COPD),
diabetes, pneumonia or a heart attack.
Purpose of Program
The purpose of this program is to help you better manage your health.
A specially-trained nurse case manager from TMC to Home will meet with
you while you are in the hospital and will be in touch with you within 24 hours
of your discharge. During this call, the nurse case manager will check to see
how you are doing, whether you have successfully obtained your medications and
if you have doctor visits arranged. The nurse case manager will provide valuable
education to help you and your family have a greater understanding of your disease
and how to manage it. They can prepare you for your doctor visits to help you get
the most out of them and can connect you to valuable community resources, as needed.
Overall, TMC to Home can help you better manage your disease, which leads
to fewer disease-related complications, fewer hospitalizations, lower out-of-pocket,
health-related costs and greater overall health. The nurse case manager is available
to you without any additional cost.
