House Calls 101: Introduction to HBPC
Description
Home-based primary care (HBPC) - or the modern-day house call - is a viable, innovative solution for high need/high cost patients who are medically complex and homebound or home-limited. HBPC providers play an important role in enhancing the quality of care provided to these patients, supporting caregivers, and reducing costs. However, primary care providers who are considering HBPC as a career choice may not fully appreciate the value of practicing in a home-based setting, nor be familiar with proven strategies for success in this field.
Objectives
In this course, you will have the unique opportunity to follow an HBPC provider and her medical assistant on a simulated house call, helping you to connect with the various HBPC assessment elements and visualize crafting an effective patient care plan. You will better understand typical steps taken before, during, and after a home visit, as well as characteristics and personal qualities that can enhance a provider's success in HBPC. Upon completion of this course, you will be able to do the following:
  1. Cite the 4Ms in the Care of Older Adults and apply these to the care of medically complex and homebound or home-limited patients.
  2. Discuss a house call's key components, including recommended steps before, during, and after each home visit.
  3. List the pros and cons of traveling with and incorporating the services of a medical assistant (MA) in home visits.
  4. Describe key characteristics of successful home-based primary care providers.
