Through customized care that is coordinated by our team of healthcare professionals, participants in TANDEM365 have access to the best services and support available with a single point of contact. All of our services are based on an initial assessment and evaluation by our healthcare professionals.
Care coordination is one of the keys to TANDEM365’s success. Our expertise ensures that all healthcare professionals and individuals involved in our participants’ care stay informed and connected, which reduces the gaps in care and prevents fragmentation.
Integrated Care Paramedic Visits
We offer rapid response to any non-life threatening, but urgent, medical issues that may arise. We perform lab specimen collection, nebulizers, oxygen therapy, IV fluids, IV medication administration, EKGs, lift assists post falls at home, and any generalized medical concerns that do not warrant the use of the emergency department.
Many hospitalizations are a direct result of mismanagement of medications. TANDEM365 ensures an accurate and appropriate medication list as well as ensures that the participants have a reliable mechanism of delivery and setup through a monitored medication dispenser, medication delivery system, or med boxes. A medical assistant may be utilized to coordinate these services.
Mental Health Resources
TANDEM365’s team of professionals provides limited mental health support; however, we are committed to the care and coordination of our participants who need mental health support. Therefore, we strive to connect to expert healthcare professionals within the community to create a supportive plan of care.
Registered Nurse Navigators
Chronic disease management, collaboration with primary care physicians (PCPs) and specialists, medication reconciliation, continuous monitoring of medication regimen, navigation of the healthcare system, robust support during care transitions, advocacy, and high-level participant education are services we provide. We can accompany participants to primary care physician appointments to ensure they understand instructions and communicate all pertinent information to the physician. We provide 24/7 access to a nurse and community paramedics for rapid response to urgent needs.
Social Work Navigators

Telehealth allows TANDEM365 to remotely monitor a participant’s blood pressure, pulse, and weight. It also allows the participant to manually enter any other measures the nurse may be interested in, such as, blood sugar and pulse oximetry. The participant may also receive questions to answer pertaining to their disease. This data assists the nurse with a snapshot of what is going on with the participant, allowing early intervention to prevent hospitalization.
