Commenting on the recent article, house call doctor Michael Farzam explains that, while it is certainly important that news outlets talk about the cost-effectiveness of house call medicine, it is good to see a discussion of the other advantages at-home care has over a traditional doctor’s appointment.

Dr. Farzam explains that cost is just one of many advantages of house call medicine.

Some of these other advantages listed in the article that Dr. Farzam would like to highlight include improved doctor/patient communication and less stress for those with limited mobility.

According to an article published September 27th by the Wall Street Journal, house call visits are now being viewed as an efficient way to save money on the healthcare needs of patients across the country. Especially for elderly patients, whose care is often far more costly than younger patients, house call visits can often effectively eliminate the need to go in and out of the emergency room with a series of medical needs. After the opportunity to save on health costs with house call medicine was revealed in a study earlier in the year, house call medicine has been widely discussed as a cost-saving option, but Dr. Michael Farzam of House Call Doctor Los Angeles notes that this article takes it another step further in discussing other advantages. Some of these other advantages listed in the article that Dr. Farzam would like to highlight include improved doctor/patient communication and less stress for those with limited mobility:

  • A Stronger Connection – The article outlined the fact that, with house call visits, patients tend to be more attentive and will listen to and follow doctors’ instructions more closely after the appointment. Dr. Farzam explains that, when doctors visit patients in their own homes, the patient often feels much more special and cared for than if they were to visit a doctor in his or her office. And, he adds, when patients feel like they have a doctor’s full attention, they in turn will give the entirety of their attention and focus back to the doctor caring for them.
  • Increased Comfort – Dr. Farzam explains that the other major advantage that house call medicine has over traditional doctors’ visits is that it allows patients to stay in the comfort of their own home while receiving care. While, to some, this may seem like something of a luxury, the article explains that it can make a tremendous difference for those with limited mobility whose hospital travel may be more of a worry than the appointment itself. This is especially true for elderly patients, which, Dr. Farzam explains, is why the articles discussing the cost-saving benefits of house call medicine have recommended this type of care for older Americans in particular.
