AccentCare: Improving Access and Timely Care for Vulnerable Patients Referred to Home Health via Telehealth Physician Support 

AccentCare and Sound Physicians partnered to develop a scalable, evidence-based program that leveraged the COVID-19 PHE telehealth waivers to speed access to Home Health services for eligible patients. The AccentCare-Sound Transition Program aimed to facilitate telehealth patient contact with a physician to overcome technology barriers, among others. The study also found that when telehealth was offered, there were timely initiations of care for patients that may have otherwise been denied home health services.
