CIMA Acute Bridging Clinic

PRACTICE DETAILS

As an option to assist our patients following a hospital or sub-acute rehabilitation discharge, CIMA’s Acute Bridging Clinic (ABC Clinic) was developed specifically to reduce the chances of our patients being readmitted back to the hospital within 30 days of their discharge.  The emphasis of the ABC Clinic is to manage the leading causes for a readmission such as: medication adherence, sign and symptom disease management, diet, self-care, and the importance of follow-up appointments.  If our patients choose to utilize this clinic after a discharge, they will follow with their routine primary care provider at CIMA after the 30 day period.
