Physician Practice Insider, August 23, 2016

On August 9, CMS posted a fact sheet regarding home-based primary care. Home-based primary care allows healthcare providers to spend more time with their patients, perform assessments in a patient’s home environment, and assume greater accountability for all aspects of the patient’s care. This focus on timely and appropriate care is designed to improve the overall quality of care and quality of life for patients served, while lowering healthcare costs by forestalling the need for care in institutional settings.
