Looking For Quality Medical Care Provided In Your Home?
A physician who makes house calls often evokes a quaint stereotype of a kindly, experienced doctor, carrying a black bag when knocking on the doors of the unwell. In the 1930s, physician house calls represented 40% of physician-patient encounters. By the late 20th century, this model largely became obsolete, pushed aside by office-centered medicine and mega health systems. By 1980, house calls had decreased to less than 1%.
Today, physician house calls are staging a comeback, driven by the need to address barriers in healthcare access, including cost and availability of timely care. Long wait times for appointments with a primary care physician and increasing use of costly emergency room (ER) visits have led to the reemergence of house calls as an alternative care delivery model. Done right, house calls could prove to be a better way of treating very sick, elderly patients while they can still live at home.
