We know Medicare wants to ensure that all doctors have the resources and information they need to coordinate your care. That’s why we’re working with many doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers that have decided to work together in Accountable Care Organizations (A.C.O.’s) to better coordinate your care. The goal of coordinated care is to ensure that patients, especially the chronically ill, get the right care at the right time, while avoiding unnecessary duplication of services and preventing medical errors.
Affinity works very hard everyday to be ranked high in keeping patients from being re-admitted to the Hospital. We offer a variety of Specialty Programs to improve the quality of life in your home and work with all health care facilities to better our system. You can compare our rankings on MEDICARE.GOV to see how we are rated with other home care companies nationwide and in Michigan.
