Starting a Home-Based Primary Care (HBPC) Program

Home health care is a cost-effective solution for your costliest patients

Home-based primary care (HBPC) programs provide desperately needed primary and palliative care and social services to more than 100,000 high-risk homebound patients. Implementing these programs shifts the use of healthcare services from emergency and inpatient care to community-based general care. High-risk, chronic patients with access to HBPC programs get regular care outside of the hospital, preventing them from worsening until they need emergency services and reducing the cost of their care while improving patient outcomes.

HBPC services improve patients’ quality of life and allow them to receive the high-quality compassionate care they want in their own homes. AAHCM has provided resources so you can make the case for and establish your own HBPC program.
