Pharmacist Assisted Transition Home (PATH) Program

A Joint Healthcare Venture of Sequoia Hospital and Pathways Home Health & HospicePathways Pharmacist "Coach"

Who wouldn't want a personal coach? That's just what patients get with PATH, a program with a pharmacist who visits patients to help coordinate their care. This program is only for people being admitted to Pathways Home Health.

This specialized program helps bridge the discharge from hospital to home. With our coaching, patients go from being cared for to safely caring for themselves.

How Does PATH Work?

A Pathways pharmacist visits identified patients in the hospital to provide information and guidance, smoothing the transition to home. The same pharmacist visits again at home, coaching the patient and caregiver to take an active role in their healthcare.

With PATH patients feel more confident about:African-American Older Couple

  • Medication management
  • Recognizing "red flag" symptoms
  • An action plan for what to do when these symptoms occur
  • Communicating with their doctor and health care team

The Pathways pharmacist "coach" uses plain language and a simple personal health record to be sure patients understand their plan of care.

We instill in our patients the confidence to manage their medications and health safely and independently!

Arranging Home Health Care

If you are hospitalized, talk with your doctor, nurse or hospital social worker about home health care and ask for Pathways as your home health provider. We will work closely with them to provide a smooth transition from hospital to your home.

If you are not in the hospital you can talk with your doctor or with our admissions staff. We will work with your doctor to develop a plan for your home health care. Our insurance coordinator will verify benefits for you.
