The Effects of HBPC


HBPC Is Preventive Medicine

This headline from a World Health Organization bulletin says it best: prevention is better than treatment. HBPC provides preventive care support and timely interventions that preempt avoidable emergency department visits and hospitalizations. Underserved patients get access to continuous care and social stressors that contribute to poor health are alleviated. Additionally, home-based primary care achieves better outcomes at lower costs while improving patient satisfaction.

By staying in touch with patients and monitoring and managing their conditions, HBPC professionals can intervene when needed to

  • prevent chronic conditions from getting worse
  • identify and address potential health conditions or other problems that require immediate attention
  • ensure that patients comply with self-care protocols
  • alleviate social stressors that contribute to poor health
  • provide emotional support that lets patients and their families know they’re not alone.

Hear it from the patients and providers benefitting from home-based primary care.

With HBPC, patients who wouldn't otherwise recieve primary care are benefitting from the care coming to them. By entering the home, providers are able to understand their patients' needs, deliver optimum care that avoids unecessary ambulatory care and emergency department visits, and allow patients to age in their own homes. HBPC is a compassionate care solution that patients appreciate and benefit from, and that positively affects the payer's bottom line.
