Reducing the Need for Off-Site Care
Armor looks for ways to maximize on-site care at all our facilities. Our capacity to do so is determined by the physical plant, availability of willing specialty and ancillary service providers, volume of patients, and cost. After we have been on-site for a period of time, we would work with our clients to analyze utilization patterns to identify what other programs could support organizing a clinic. We have a proven track record of expanding on-site care and reducing off-site services while improving a facility’s overall quality of care.
Since many hospital services can be safely provided in the jail, by maximizing infirmary use, we reduce the volume of off-site transfers and shorten the average length of stay for those patients who do require hospitalization.
