Our Services are second to none


Impact Healthcare Management is a national firm that partners with inpatient healthcare facilities to deliver One-Eighty, a medical withdrawal stabilization service.  One-Eighty provides hospital executives with a unique opportunity to address a pervasive community need (validated by their Community Needs Assessment), find significant new revenue at good profit margins, increase their census, and do all of this with very little financial risk or exposure because there are no capital investments, renovations or upfront costs required. 




ONE-EIGHTY SERVICE SUMMARY 


One-Eighty is an inpatient medical service for voluntary patients, with verified payment benefits, who have decided to take a 180° turn away from alcohol and drugs and take the first step toward a better life through the One-Eighty service for withdrawal stabilization in a medical hospital setting.  This is not a psychiatric or behavioral care service and these are not patients in advanced stages of withdrawal who need emergency care.  These patients call an 800 number, are screened by One-Eighty staff for medical criteria and payment benefits, and come in for treatment by scheduled appointment.  These are medical patients on a medical floor and reimbursed at a medical rate with an average length of stay of 3 days.  Discharge planning, by One-Eighty staff, assists patients entering into appropriate after care programs and services for follow up.
