Home-Based Primary Care – An innovative model of medical care for homebound adults – Dr. Bruce Leff
Dr. Bruce Leff is a professor of medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He is an internationally recognized leader and researcher in the development, evaluation and dissemination of novel models of care for older adults, including the Hospital at Home, Guided Care, geriatric service line models and medical house call practices.
In this video he discusses the growing population of homebound adults and the use of 911 and the emergency room as their only access to medical care. He suggests home-based medical care is a method to improve outcomes, reduce hospital admissions, reduce hospital readmissions and lower costs.
The Home Centered Care Institute (HCCI) is a national non-profit organization focused on advancing home-based primary care (HBPC) to ensure that chronically ill, medically complex and homebound patients have access to high-quality care in their home. HCCI works with leading academic medical centers, health systems and industry experts to raise awareness of and advocate for expanding the HBPC model by growing the HBPC workforce through education and training and developing a research-based model for sustainable house call program implementation and growth.
Our Mission and Vision
The Home Centered Care Institute (HCCI) is dedicated to creating universal access to best practice house call programs, making home-based primary care the national standard for treating medically complex patients who are better cared for in the home.
We seek to ensure every patient in need has access to quality medical care in the home that results in a profound improvement in medical outcomes, patient and family experience and health care spend.
