Do you have trouble getting out of your home for an office visit? Are you unable to drive? A house call or telehealth visit may be the answer. House calls provide a unique perspective on patients’ environment and health problems. The demand for house calls is expected to increase considerably in future decades as the U.S. population ages. House calls may reduce hospital readmissions and long-term care facility stays. Keeping you safe from Covid is another good reason for a house call or telehealth visit. Common indications for house calls are management of acute or chronic illnesses. In addition to performing a clinical assessment, house calls may involve observing the patient performing daily activities, reconciling medication discrepancies, and evaluating home safety. Telehealth visits do not provide this same level of assessment as a house call but can still be very beneficial in treating minor illnesses. A deposit may be required for a house call depending on your location in relation to the office in Van, Texas.
