We Partner With You To Improve Care For Your Patients

Created By: Simon Howden

Housecall Doctors Medical Group (HDMG) provides home health agencies with clinical resources for smooth and timely coordination of care. Our Residentialist clinicians work closely with Home Health staff to optimize outcomes in the transition of patients from hospital and Skilled Nursing Facilities to home. When a change of condition occurs in the home, and skilled home services become necessary, we are available to offer support and to initiate appropriate treatment orders.

HDMG clinicians are readily available to provide face to face documentation, and  initiate orders needed to begin and/or continue Home Health services. Once home health services are established, we arrange regular home visits and follow-up services and work in collaboration with the home health agency to ensure consistent support during the episode of care.

Our physicians are highly experienced in hospice care, and are available to provide ongoing support as the hospice attending physician. For hospice patients we supply end of life counseling, support in the execution of advanced directives, Hospice referrals, initial certifications, re-certifications, and face to face visits as required under Medicare regulations.

Our in-office team includes a staff of patient care representatives, care managers, and nurses who work with field-based doctors, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners. The inter-professional team approach ensures that all stakeholders collaborate to meet the needs of the patients. Should clinician support be needed outside of normal business hours, Housecall Doctors Medical Group has a 24 hour/ 7 day a week clinician on call to speak with agency staff, patients, families, and caregivers.
