What is indirect care?

Answer

According to Briarcliffe College, indirect care in the healthcare industry involves providing services that affect patients without interacting with patients. This contrasts with direct care, where professionals perform procedures and provide personal care.

Briarcliffe College identifies examples of indirect care that immediately benefit patients, such as cleaning living areas and preparing and delivering food. Other types of indirect care are medical tasks, including cleaning equipment, dealing with therapeutic supplies and transporting specimens to laboratories. Indirect care is also concerned with office work that relates to patients, such as staffing telephone lines, scheduling appointments, organizing patient paperwork and other clerical tasks.
