According to an article published February 26th on the Miami Herald, a program that pairs medical university students and faculty with medically underserved families has accounted for improved patient care among patients seeking medical care. One of the patients served by the program commented that, thanks to the care she has received, she feels “10 years younger.” The author of the article explains that the university medical team carries out house calls by visiting patients in their own homes, ensuring medication compliance, checking vital signs, and discussing the steps required to improve patients’ health. The founder of House Call Doctor Los Angeles, Dr. Michael Farzam, notes that these factors jibe with what he has seen in his own practice and that, including spending more individual time with patients to address all possible concerns accounts for dramatically improved patient care with house call medicine. Dr. Farzam explains some of the additional benefits that house call medicine offers:
- Individualized care – One of the advantages that house call medicine brings about, which is not possible in the hospital environment, is that the doctor actually visits the patient in their home, Dr. Farzam notes. The home environment actually offers the physician a wealth of knowledge about the patient and his or her lifestyle that might otherwise go unnoticed, he adds. For example, if a patient is struggling with respiratory issues, a house call physician may be able to notice environmental factors, which can lead to an increased level of patient care. The more information a doctor has at his or her disposal, the more likely he or she can support a patient in maintaining their health.
- Simply economical – Dr. Farzam says that the average wait time at an urgent care facility can be as high as two or three hours, so it may actually save patients time to schedule a house call. Additionally, medical house calls may be a more budget conscious decision to make – hospitals and clinics tend to have complex operational structures and overhead expenses, which in turn drive up the price of medical care. When doctors can provide medical services directly, the savings are passed onto the patient, Dr. Farzam explains.
Dr. Farzam concludes that, for any other type of illness or injury, house call medicine is widely acknowledged as an effective and excellent method of providing health care directly to patients.
