We Bring the Care to You
There are times when a patient may not be able to make it to the office to see their primary care doctor. Such circumstances shouldn’t impede access to quality healthcare. That is why, in 2020, we launched a pilot program to bring our outstanding providers directly to patients outside of the traditional office setting.
Our Home Visit team provides Enhanced Annual Visits (EAVs) in the home for patients identified as high risk and/or homebound who have not received an EAV in 2019.
In addition to the EAV, our Nurse Practitioners bring the equipment to complete an A1C, Microalbumin, Diabetic Retinal Exam and/or Bone Density screening if the patient is due for any of these tests.
Note: This is a pilot program currently available to Independent Health members identified by their insurance carrier only. We hope to expand coverage of this program in 2020.
Thank you Carolyn Doyle, NP. My parents are older, with some chronic conditions and with everything going on at this time, my family felt very strongly about not sending them out to visit their doctors. It was suggested that we look into the Home Visit program. The ease of scheduling and access to a quick appointment was wonderful. Carolyn immediately put both my mom and dad at ease. They were able to have vital signs sent off to a primary care and a cardiovascular doctor, bloodwork and other evaluations were done in the comfort of their own home. She was professional, courteous and most of all compassionate – we could not have asked for a better visit. Thank you General Physician, for caring and having nurses like Carolyn out in the field. What a wonderful service. They are now also set up to have video visits – another great service that will keep them safe at home and well cared for during this crisis.
