Physician Housecalls provides primary care services, just like physicians and mid-level providers in clinics everywhere. Our typical patient has multiple chronic disease diagnoses and requires frequent monitoring to be able to remain in the home setting, whether in a private residence or an assisted living center. In addition to making face-to-face visits, our physicians and other clinical staff also provide a broad range of services.
Care Plan Oversight (CPO) – Supervision of patients under the care of home health agencies or hospices to develop and/or revise care plans, review reports of patient status, review of laboratory and other studies, communication with other health professionals, integration of new information into the care plan, and/or adjustment of medical therapy.
Transitional Care Management – Communication and visits with the patient within 7-14 days of discharge from the hospital. This service is designed to prevent re-hospitalization during the time frame that the patient is most vulnerable.
Chronic Care Management – Additional oversight of patients with chronic conditions; can include phone calls to check on
While Physician Housecalls does not directly provide laboratory or x-ray services, we work with providers of these services in the area to go to the patient’s residence to obtain these studies.

I thank God every day for you all. Between health issues and family issues, I don’t know what I would do if I had to get transportation to and from doctor appointments. It’s a life-saver.
