PARCC™ PROGRAM

Our Post-Acute Respiratory Care Continuum Program (PARCC) focuses on improving transitional care from the hospital to the home setting.

The PARCC Program starts as soon as we identify a patient by assigning a personal Respiratory Therapist (RT) to each patient.  That RT collaborates with the care team to help facilitate a smooth transition and continue hospital quality care into the home.  Each personalized RT assists in creating custom care plans for patients after doing an assessment of home environments, activities of daily living, and patient lifestyle.  Hospitals, physicians, and payers have come to lean on our PARCC program to provide them with a better care plan for the patients, which ultimately leads to reducing the cost of healthcare &  improved quality of life for our patients.

List of Services and Products

Respiratory Disease Management (including COPD)

This service aims at improving quality of life and reducing hospital re-admissions by using proven methodology and leading technologies such as Non-Invasive Ventilation (“NIV”) and other therapies, counselling on proper diet, activity level, smoking cessation and inhaler use. Viemed provides ventilation (both invasive and non-invasive), Positive Airway Pressure (“PAP”), oxygen therapy, and related equipment and supplies to patients suffering from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (“COPD”)

Respiratory Therapists

We offer a comprehensive respiratory program for patients with complex breathing problems. Our highly-trained staff of Respiratory Therapists provide a customized respiratory care plan for every patient. Viemed assigns a personal therapist for every patient who is on call 24/7, with all calls going directly to their cell phone to provide a trusted clinician immediately available to our patients. We do on-site education and assessments of a patient's condition to help the patient & caregivers understand and manage their disease.

Neuromuscular Care

This service is focused on helping neuromuscular patients to breathe more comfortably while living an active, healthier life and uses respiratory therapy treatments which can lessen the effort required to breathe. Various neuromuscular diseases can weaken the muscles that control inhaling and exhaling. The result can be insufficient gas exchange, causing carbon dioxide levels to increase in the system, leading to respiratory failure.

In-home sleep testing and Sleep Apnea treatment

This service, provided through Home Sleep Delivered, focuses on providing in-home testing for potential sleep apnea sufferers and providing related solutions and/ or equipment like the AutoPAP and BiPAP machines.

Oxygen Therapy

This service provides the patient with extra oxygen, which is sometimes used to manage certain chronic health problems. Oxygen therapy may be performed at a hospital, at home or in another setting.

TESTIMONIALS

C. Johnson

Albany, LA

I absolutely love my machine. I feel great and the other day was the first time in 2 years I was able to walk more than 10 feet and the only thing I changed is that I am now using this machine. I even put a call in to my doctor to let her know how great the machine is.

Judith W.

Arkadelphia, AR

I used to sleep until noon because I had no energy but after using Trilogy I get up around 8 and clean and cook and feel so much more energy from using the NIV. I love it and wish I would have known about it years ago.

Lisa F.

Raceland, LA

I embraced the Trilogy therapy and committed myself to using it and really bought in. I stopped smoking, started exercising and went on a diet and within 6-9 months of starting Trilogy therapy have lost 70 pounds. I still use Trilogy but hardly use O2 during the day and am able to play with my grandchildren and continues exercising.

The technology and clinical support provided by VieMed allows my chronic COPD patients to be treated very effectively in their own home whereas in the past the only option was to admit them to the hospital.

Dr. James H.

Tulsa, OK

I have had several difficult patients who have shown remarkable improvement and I attribute this to VieMed's diligence and follow up care.  I have yet to witness any other DME supplier provide the same level of care.

Clayton H.

Dixon, MO

I use NIV every night and have also successfully quit smoking with your program. I am now able to go back to church. I had stopped going of the because of the walk from the car to the pew. I was pretty much stuck in the house because of my breathing. I also now am able to go play cards one night a week. I have not been readmitted or been back for any unscheduled doctor visits and will will not go with out my NIV!

Since starting therapy 2 years ago this month, I have regained the energy to cook and  clean for myself and even have a part time job!

I love my machine - it's been a lifesaver.

Lavergne H.

It does everything you said. I can’t imagine not having it.

Dr. Eric E.

This particular outfit (VieMed) provides excellent care to ALS and other patients needing noninvasive ventilation, cough assist and similar care.  Their response time is excellent and their quality of care is the best I have seen for such patients.

(VieMed) was more than accommodating to set the equipment up whenever and wherever it was needed… I could not believe what a difference there was between my Bi-Pap and Trilogy.   I could breathe so much better!…When I wake up in the mornings I feel refreshed and energetic.  With Trilogy it is a deeper sleep and more restful...my sleep pattern has improved, in that the swelling in my legs has decreased and my blood sugars are lower.
