Grand-Aides, LLC provides a training model that enables people to help connect patients with medical coverage in a timely manner. Once trained under the Grand-Aides model, these community health workers become 'Grand-Aides,' capable of delivering healthcare to remote areas.
Grand-Aides have had prior training in medical care (such as a Nurse Aide) and then take an added Grand-Aide curriculum. Under the supervision of a nurse or physician, Grand-Aides use telephone protocols and home visits with portable telemedicine to provide transitional, hospital discharge, and chronic disease management, as well as primary and preventive intervention to improve access to needed care in rural areas. They also help to reduce unnecessary emergency, clinic and hospital visits, which reduces healthcare costs.
