Home Visits Q & A

What are Home Visits?

A home visit is a doctor’s appointment that takes place in the comfort of your own home when you’re unable to make it into the office.

Prominis Medical Services physicians coordinate and collaborate with local home care agencies to ensure you receive proper and personalized medical support. The physicians work with long-term managed care programs that offer transportation, visiting nurses and specialty care, and more.

Home visits are individually designed services to provide diagnosis, wellness monitoring, and treatment to help you remain in your own home and improve your general health and wellness, even if you’re unable to travel to your nearest Prominis Medical Services location.

Home visits can decrease the likelihood of unnecessary and costly emergency room visits and hospitalizations.

Who Would Benefit from Home Visits?

Medical home visits are designed for people who:

  • Are elderly or at risk
  • Have difficulty leaving their home or have mobility issues
  • Have multiple, serious, or complex health conditions
  • Were recently discharged from a hospital or a skilled nursing or rehabilitation facility
  • Have a terminal illness
  • Are in severe pain
  • Have disruptive behavior and mental health problems

 

Prominis Medical Services home visit providers speak Spanish, Mandarin, Cantonese, and English to better communicate with a diverse group of patients. The team caters to all populations of NYC and treats Medicaid beneficiaries.

What Do Medical At-Home Visits Involve?

Medical home visits might involve several services, such as:

  • Testing, like blood tests or urinalysis
  • Ongoing primary medical care and the management of chronic illness
  • Time to ask your questions and address your concerns
  • Prescription refills
  • Evaluation of memory, physical and mental capacity, fall risk, and more

  

Just like traditional office appointments, your home visit includes disease prevention, health education, and identifying any disease risks.

Home visits make it possible for you to receive X-rays, ultrasounds, urine and blood tests, and other testing in your home without the need to travel.

During your home visit, your provider can even arrange social support services and contact special community agencies or other resources to give you the care you need. Your provider can also help you feel more comfortable in your home and help you plan how to adjust your home environment, so it works best for you in your current state of health. Your home visit provider can evaluate safety issues and other conditions in your home from a medical perspective.
