Have you ever wondered if you could receive healthcare without having to leave your own home? It is possible with home visits from your primary care doctor. They provide the convenience of medical care without having to travel to a doctor’s office or hospital. Not only do home visits give you the flexibility to receive care in the comfort and privacy of your own home, but they can also save time, money, and energy.
During home visits, your primary care doctor is available 24/7 and can spend time taking care of you and your family without the distraction of insurance paperwork. Primary doctors are also able to provide more comprehensive and personalized care for their patients, including diagnosis and treatment for both acute and chronic illnesses. They can also coordinate care with other specialists, home health agencies, and social services. We will provide you below with information about primary care home visits, the services available, and how Community Healthcare Partners can help.
A primary care home visit is when a primary care doctor visits their patients at their home to perform a physical examination, diagnosis, provision of healthcare education, and treatment. Home visits are typically scheduled in advance; however, some doctors or medical professionals are available 24/7 to do a “walk-in” appointment for any urgent care needs that arise.
Primary care home visits are provided by primary care physicians (PCPs). Primary Care Physicians (PCPs) practice general healthcare and serve as the first point of contact during health concerns, such as preventive care, treatments, or detection of an illness or condition. PCPs are also able to provide referrals to a specialist when needed. However, PCPs accept payments from health insurance companies, which can provide some limitations when providing at-home treatment, including spending less time with a patient.
At Community Healthcare Partners, we provide primary care for individuals to receive at-home visits, so it reduces waiting times, ensures patient safety, and saves money while receiving personalized care. Contact us today for more information.
