The term ‘high-intensity care’ is relatively new in the medical sphere and refers to intense therapies and procedures that help patients recover. Many people require complex/high-intensity care daily due to illnesses or injuries, but not all hospitals have the appropriate facilities. High-Intensity Care supports those struggling with difficult illnesses like cancer and delivers care in a family home-like environment. This blog will focus on the benefits these services offer to the patient’s recovery process.
What is the goal of High-Intensity Care?
The goal of complex/high-intensity care is to improve the quality of life for patients with chronic conditions. It is a comprehensive, interdisciplinary approach to care that focuses on the whole person, not just their illness. High-intensity care includes all aspects of the patient’s life, including their social and emotional well-being and physical health. The goal is to help patients manage their chronic conditions so they can live full, active lives. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to high-intensity care. Instead, each patient’s care plan is customized to their individual needs. The care team works with the patient to identify their goals and develop a plan to help them achieve them. The team may include specialists in various fields, such as medicine, nursing, dietetics, physical therapy, and social work.
What are some high-intensity treatments?
complex/high-intensity care is often used to care for patients with more serious health conditions. These treatments can be very powerful and may have significant side effects. Patients who receive high-intensity treatments often need to be monitored closely by their healthcare team. Some examples of high-intensity treatments include: -Chemotherapy -Radiation therapy -Stem cell transplants -Immunotherapy
Are there any side effects to high-intensity care?
Yes, high-intensity care has potential side effects but are typically rare and mild. The most common side effect is feeling flushed or warm. Other potential side effects include low blood pressure, headache, nausea, and irregular heartbeat. Most of these side effects are temporary and will go away independently. However, if you experience severe or persistent side effects, please contact your doctor or healthcare provider immediately.
Benefits of high-intensity care
complex/high-intensity care has many benefits, especially when treating patients with chronic conditions. Studies have shown that high-intensity care can help improve patient outcomes, reduce hospital readmissions, and lower healthcare costs. Patients who receive high-intensity care often have better clinical outcomes than those who receive standard care. For example, one study found that heart failure patients who received high-intensity care were less likely to be readmitted to the hospital within 30 days than those who received standard care. Another study found that patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) who received high-intensity care had a significantly lower mortality rate than those who received standard care. High-intensity care can also help reduce healthcare costs. For example, a study of heart failure patients found that those who received high-intensity care had fewer emergency department visits than those who received standard care. This can lead to significant savings for both patients and the healthcare system.
