DispatchHealth caters to people living with heart failure.
If you or a loved one is living with heart failure, DispatchHealth is here to be your partner in healthcare. We provide on-demand, in-home medical treatment to individuals with complex medical issues like heart disease and heart failure.
We bring advanced medical care directly to you
Coping with heart failure presents unique challenges. Not only are heart failure symptoms difficult to deal with on their own, but they can also combine to weaken the immune system, potentially creating additional health issues for you or your loved one. During this time, it’s important for you or your loved one to focus on health, family, and overall well being. DispatchHealth makes it easier to do this by eliminating the many stressors involved with traveling to crowded, inconvenient, and germ-filled urgent care clinics and emergency rooms when non-life-threatening heart failure-related health concerns arise. In-home care is particularly beneficial to people living with heart failure, as the combination of symptoms from chronic heart disease can weaken the immune system and increase the risk of catching illnesses from others. Some of these chronic symptoms that can make people more susceptible to other illnesses include lower extremity swelling, shortness of breath, and heart palpitations. In-home medical care is a safer option than traditional urgent care clinics and emergency rooms for people living with heart failure who don’t want to risk further illness due to a compromised immune system.
When medical care is needed to treat an illness, bandage or clean a wound, or address the ongoing symptoms of heart disease, simply give DispatchHealth a call or request care online or through our app. We’ll promptly send a board-certified medical team – which will include a nurse practitioner or physician assistant and an EMT-level trained DispatchHealth medical technician (DHMT), along with an ER physician who is available by phone – to provide assistance in the comfort and convenience of your own home.
A more sensible approach to healthcare for heart disease patients
DispatchHealth’s medical teams are fully equipped to provide an array of in-home care to help individuals with heart failure find relief from symptoms and experience an improved quality of life. In fact, we can provide many of the same services as an ER, but at a small fraction of the cost. From on-site blood tests and urinalysis to minor procedures and expert health advice, DispatchHealth can supply key medical services onsite. Our teams even carry a 12-lead EKG machine onboard our dispatch vehicles used to screen patients for possible cardiac ischemia. We are then able to send a detailed report to the patient’s primary care physician and appropriate specialists to ensure continuity of care.
DispatchHealth is here to serve you every day, including holidays, and accepts most health insurance plans. Contact us today to request care.
