Provider Benefits

Our physicians and nurse practitioners enjoy professional growth and personal satisfaction from providing healthcare in the traditional fashion.

Home care medicine brings high-quality office level of medical care to the patients, where care is needed most.

Providers can obtain information about patient functioning at home, adherence to care plans, patients’ environment, and caregiver issues that is not available in the clinic/office setting.

Patients and family are appreciative, when their needs are being met without battling the fragmentation of the healthcare system. This leads to an improved provider/patient relationship.

Providers are able to take their time in a calm, unhurried fashion to provide holisitic care to achieve better outcomes and high patient/provider satisfaction rather than worrying about seeing a high volume of patients as demonstrated in some clinic settings.

Providers are able to achieve flexible scheduling around personal and family functions.

Office-Based Medical Providers/Clinic Benefits

Medical providers in private and group practices achieve improved coordination of care and support for their patients who are unable to access their offices.

Home care medicine improves efficiency in clinics by avoiding prolonged use of exam rooms and staff by complex patients who move slowly.

Physicians remove barriers in access to care for their frail elderly patients who seem to be experiencing increasing difficulty traveling to their office for health care. Multiple complex chronic conditions cause exhaustive efforts to leave home and limit access to traditional ambulatory medical clinics/offices. Exhaustive efforts making trips to outpatient medical offices create non-compliant patients who often cut pills in half or skip doses in attempt to stretch prescriptions and prolong the need for an office visit.

Regular home medical visits to patients with multiple chronic conditions reduces unnecessary ER visits and hospitalizations and reduces length of stays for those who do need admitted on occasion. Patients with multiple comorbid conditions tend to ignore exacerbation of symptoms to avoid exhaustive trip to medical clinic until they get to a point to call the ambulance and go to the ED for care that could have been prevented through use of routine in-home primary care medical visits (i.e. house calls).

Some patients only need temporary home visits due to a recent fall, surgery, exacerbation of illness, or other unpredictable life event. Our providers are accustomed to working with physician’s offices to collaborate care in the home until the patients can transfer back to care in the office.

We use EHR and eRX technology.
We communicate up-to-date results of lab and radiology reports.
We provide all visit documentation and prescription information to the office.
Primary care providers can maintain active participation in their patients’ care through collaboration with our providers. Collaboration with our providers can earn additional income to help substitute any lost revenue from less frequent visits by the patient. Call our office to find out more about how we can work together to improve patients’ health, while you continue to generate an income for collaborating in their care.
