Addison Internal Medicine is proud to be associated with Medical Home Team, a health care management company that partners with doctors to create a specialized method of delivering in-home medical care. Medical Home Team works with physicians to provide help to patients suffering from chronic health issues.
There are several advantages to in-home medical care, including convenience, comfort and many others. In many cases, a visit to a physician’s office on its own is not sufficient when it comes to ensuring that a doctor is completely aware of all a patient’s issues and treatment preferences. A combination of office visits and in-home care, however, can accomplish just that. These are just a few of the reasons to consider this option.
Convenience and Comfort
In-home medical care from Medical Home Team can help lower costs and also substantially improve a patient’s quality of life. Medical Home Team professionals manage a wide range of healthcare needs, ranging from acute and chronic care to preventive services and end of life care. Your medical team can be available no matter what the time of day or night to answer questions and address any issues that may occur. Patients receive reliable, comprehensive and prompt care in the safety and comfort of their own home, potentially reducing the need for extremely costly emergency room visits and hospital admissions.
Working closely with your primary care physician, your in-home medical care team will provide you with individual attention and use the latest technology to provide your doctor with electronic records, minimizing paperwork. When you need prescription medication, Medical Home Team will provide you customized package organized by dose, day and time. In addition, any medical equipment you may need can be delivered and set up by your team, who will then provide detailed instructions on how to use it.
This service is not intended to replace your regular physician, however. Whenever you need additional care in your home, your doctor will send the team to your home. Once you no longer need in-home medical care you will return to seeing your doctor as normal.
