How do I Receive Hospital Medicine Services?
After you’re admitted to the hospital, your Synergy Health 360 specialist helps coordinate your care. They evaluate you by reviewing your symptoms and medical history and completing a physical exam. Your provider might order or review blood tests, urine tests, lung function tests, X-rays, or other diagnostic tests to confirm your diagnosis, detect possible complications, and develop a treatment plan.

- Prescription medications
- Respiratory therapy for pneumonia
- IV nutrition, fluids, or medicines
- Health education
- Dietary changes
- Surgical procedures
- Physical, occupational, or speech therapy
- Other outpatient referrals
After you’re discharged from the hospital, your Synergy Health 360 specialist follows up with you regarding your care. They make sure you’re feeling better and schedule follow-up visits when necessary to ensure you stay healthy and avoid complications.
