Home-Based Primary Care – Reducing Readmissions and Meeting Healthcare’s Triple Aim
Tom Cornwell, MD, CEO of the Home Centered Care Institute, was recently interviewed by Readmissions News, a publication for hospital and health system executives. In the Q&A, Dr. Cornwell shares why house calls are important to the healthcare industry today. He goes on to explain how and why home-based primary care meets healthcare’s “triple aim” – improving the quality of life for our nation’s most complex patients, delivering substantially better experiences for patients and caregivers, and dramatically reduces health care costs. Finally, he discusses the challenges related to providing house calls to the nearly 4 million chronically ill, medically complex homebound patients who would benefit from HBPC.
