About PHS

At Provider Health Services (PHS), we share a common mission - to improve the well-being and quality of life for seniors, their family members, and their facility providers. We accomplish this through a unique approach to care. It is found in the uniquely fundamental model of care we employ and in the nature of how we operate. We call it the PHS Foundation of Care.

The PHS Foundation Of Care: Our Collaborative Care Approach

Patients and their Families

We understand that caring for the elderly in this environment presents unique challenges. We stand out, among other ways, by our presence and availability to patients and their families.

Standing out by reaching out...

We cannot emphasize it enough; we believe our senior population deserves the best care we are able to offer, including prompt assessments, appropriate and timely follow-ups, and a plan of care designed to meet their short term and long range goals. It's a goal every employee in the company shares. Our Providers are drawn to geriatrics, where decisions are individualized and, of necessity, less protocol driven. Geriatric care is both a science and an art.  Providers have to think outside of the box on a daily basis, for a host of reasons related to the environment, staff capabilities, individual patient needs, and family desires.  We work not only with the patient, but with the family unit as well, which, in this setting, takes being physically available and is no easy task. Compassionate communication with each involved family member, rooted in education, is a critical and often overlooked component to successfully managing patient care in this environment.

To that end, we understand that a vital component of delivering effective care in this environment is for all members of the healthcare team to take into account a patient's (and their family's) wishes. That's what makes our Collaborative Care approach so valuable.  We do our best to ensure that all Healthcare Professionals in the PHS family, as well as our corporate partners at SNFs, long-term care facilities, and hospitals, work as an interdisciplinary team to provide the highest level of compassionate and thoughtful care possible for our seniors. This takes time, which is in short supply in our current healthcare environment.

Community based collaborative care approach

We believe models of care that lead to action, not words, define the necessary healthcare change needed in America. Through our Collaborative Care approach, our Providers are dedicated to actively working with our partner facilities and communities, as well as other healthcare professionals, to revolutionize the course of how high-quality, cost-effective care is delivered to patients in Skilled Nursing Facilities, Long-Term Acute Care Hospitals, Long-Term Nursing Facilities, In-Patient Rehabilitation Facilities, and Assisted Living settings throughout the United States.

This transformation includes working with and employing high caliber Physicians and Nurse Practitioners who are educated about post-acute and long-term care, motivated for change, and, as a result, are uniquely aligned to the active care of patients in Skilled Nursing, Long-Term Care, and Assisted Living Facilities. We constantly strive to improve clinical and business processes and to streamline the delivery of care through the seamless integration of advanced electronic information technology, processes, provider education, and communication with our partners.

Our expertise and focus in the increasingly important post-acute space provides our partners a unique and sometimes surprising spirit of practitioner cooperation, collaboration, and innovation. The difference is immediately noticeable and obvious to patients, families, facilities, and healthcare providers alike.

PHS is involved in several CMS alternative payment models and grant-funded projects, and PHS serves in various consulting and practice capacities for multiple Institutional Special Needs Plans (ISNPs), with different Models of Care. Through this variety of cutting edge experience, PHS has gained an incredible Provider-based perspective into effective ISNP and patient population Case Management.

It truly makes a difference for patients, their families, Post Acute and Long-Term Care partner Facilities, Hospitals, and collaborating Physicians.
