Cooperative Program Across Health Partners For End-to-End Coronavirus Care
Online PR News – 21-April-2020 – Denver, Colorado – Bloom Healthcare, a Colorado-based, physician-led primary and urgent care provider, is pioneering Colorado’s efforts to treat COVID-19 in the home.
Bloom announced it is leading a COVID-19 Task Force consisting of the top home health, personal care, durable medical equipment, oxygen, and palliative care groups in the industry.
In partnership with several local hospital systems, this Bloom-led Task Force brings high-touch, technology and testing-driven COVID-19 care and monitoring, home to patients before and after coronavirus related hospitalizations. Via this effort, the Task Force will meet care needs, monitor for rapid changes in condition, and help patients achieve goals of recovery and comfort.
The efforts of this task force will help to alleviate the strain of this pandemic on our local hospital systems, ensuring patients most in need of care in the ICU are able to access that care, and that patients recovering from COVID-19 receive the monitoring, therapy, medications, and overall care needed to regain their independence in the home. Task force standards of care include daily patient touch points, remote patient monitoring, 24/7 physician availability, and ongoing coordination with hospitalists and primary care providers involved in patient care.
"Our task force represents a joint response to a communal threat and we are dedicated to alleviating the strain on our hospitals, providing patients with quality care at home, and continuing to fight!”— Thomas Lally CEO of Bloom Healthcare
Bloom can receive and start care on COVID-19 patients seven days per week. The intake process is simple and new patients can be scheduled with providers the same day.
