hospital executives

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 find a significant new revenue stream that is tied directly to meeting a pervasive community health need, 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/or 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.
