An On-demand patient is one that may not need the full services of SmartCare on a regular basis, but rather has specific needs that arise only on occasion. On-demand patients are typically recovering at home from a recent hospital stay, but may have a unique situation arise which requires the specialized assistance of a SmartCare Paramedic. These sub-acute situations can be time sensitive. A visit from a SmartCare Paramedic, at the direction of their provider, could provide the patient with intervention that can prevent significant delays in their recovery.
The SmartCare Paramedic will perform a complete assessment of the patient and report back to the Attending Physician, who will then develop a care plan based on that assessment that is most appropriate to the patient and their individual situation. The SmartCare provider understands the importance of the patient recovery being directed by the attending physician.
