About Care Navigation

Henry County Medical Center

Hospital-based care navigation is provided through a partnership with Henry County Medical Center to patients who discharge from their hospital.

Why Care Navigation?

If you have a chronic health condition, it can be harder to recover after leaving the hospital. The HCMC Care Navigator is dedicated to helping you make that transition back home through patient follow-up phone calls and serving as a liaison between you and your provider and healthcare team. If you are enrolled in the care navigation program, you will receive:

  • Automated phone calls to monitor health status
  • No answer or a change in health alerts the Care Navigator to call you and help you get needed services
  • Availability to contact the Care Navigator to discuss your medical condition or health-related issues

 

After 30 days, you will be automatically enrolled in the Chronic Disease Management Program which:

  • helps ensure you are able to get your medications
  • helps with transportation to and from appointments if needed
  • assists with referrals to specialists
