Navigating the care journey after the hospital can often be complex and unclear for both providers and patients.

It is crucial that patients receive the right care, at the right time, and in the right place after leaving the hospital, so that their individual goals and needs are met and their quality of life is as optimal as possible.

MHA’s Continuum of Care Council undertook a collaborative process to create an “After the Hospital” post-acute care guide for patients, families, providers, and clinicians. This guide is the first of its kind among healthcare systems across the country.

Are you a patient, family member, or provider looking for guidance on what kind of post-hospital care is best based on your unique situation?
