Program Overview

The Medical House Calls program is specifically tailored to support elderly patients in their desire to age comfortably at home, aiming to minimize hospital readmissions and overall healthcare costs. This initiative is driven by an interdisciplinary team that delivers comprehensive primary care directly to patients in their homes or assisted living facilities. Typically serving patients aged 65 and above who face challenges in attending traditional medical appointments, the program primarily assists individuals managing multiple chronic conditions, coping with changes in functional ability, handling polypharmacy, and dealing with frailty or debility.

The primary care services provided through this program involve intensive patient management and meticulous care coordination, with a particular focus on advance care planning. To ensure optimal patient outcomes, the program team establishes robust partnerships with various healthcare entities, including inpatient teams, hospice agencies, skilled nursing facilities, physical therapy, occupational therapy, mental health services, and county support services.
