House calls

House calls gives the Doctor a unique opportunity on a patients life, that they don’t get in an office visit or during hospitalization. A house call fosters the doctor/patient relationship, and improves the Doctors understanding of the patient's environment and support systems.

Benefits of house call programs were demonstrated when they were multidimensional and included multiple visits. Our approach is based on the VA’s uses of multidisciplinary care team to serve frail older persons in the home.

The VA has demonstrated fewer hospital admissions, shorter lengths of stay, reduction in readmission rates, and reduction in long-term care facility stays.

Multidisciplinary team and inclusion of a physician and nurse practitioner are important factors to reduce inpatient days. Click here to read study from American Family Physicians.
