About Origin Healthcare

Changing the Future of Healthcare for the Better

Technology is rapidly changing the way medicine is practiced and how care will be delivered in the future. At Origin Healthcare we understand how these changes can be optimized to improve patient care. We deliver high quality, lower cost care directly to the patient in their home, giving patients a choice to meet their unique needs.

Research has shown that treating moderate to high acuity illnesses in the home is safe and effective. Patients are more satisfied when treated in their homes, functional status is better preserved, hospital readmission rates are lower, and outcomes are improved. We are excited to be leading the way in the evolution of healthcare— customized hospital care delivered to the individual in their own home.

Healthcare Cost

The United States spends over $1 trillion dollars in hospital care each year and hospital costs are a leading cause of personal debt. Due to this, individuals will often choose to avoid or delay care. If cost can be decreased, patients will get care earlier, moving the course of illness back and improving outcomes.

Patient Safety

Hospital stays can increase complications. Hospital acquired infections and delirium are common. Almost 1/4 of patients discharged from the hospital will be readmitted within 30 days. These factors increase the likelihood of poor outcomes and diminished quality of life.

How It Works

Bridging Healthcare Systems: Origin Integrated Care

 

A patient is assessed by their local medical provider and needs acute medical care. The patient, outpatient provider, and Origin Healthcare collaborate to determine if receiving care at home is safe and appropriate. Once Origin Healthcare treatment is selected, Origin Healthcare delivers exceptional care to the patient’s home. When our patient improves, Origin Healthcare collaborates with the outpatient primary team and engages community resources to ensure a smooth transition of care and ongoing improved health.
