What is a Home Care Doctor?

A home care doctor is a type of doctor that manages the diagnosis, treatment, and ongoing monitoring of patients in their own homes. They take a holistic approach to care and often inquire about subjects outside of treatment such as lifestyle, family and community. They also focus on quality of life and what patients want from their medical care.

What Does a Home Care & Home Health Physician Do?

Some of the most important responsibilities for a home care doctor include:

1. Identifying the Home-Care Needs of a Patient

Physicians play an essential and key role in developing a care plan for patients. Working closely with the patient and family, they will develop a plan for which services are required – including physical therapy, occupational therapy and home health aids. The plan should also include how many hours of care a patient will need and how regularly the care should be provided. Their essential clinical information and medical judgment provide the foundation for a successful care plan.

2.Evaluating, Monitoring and Updating Care

Doctors help identify new, sudden or slowly appearing medical problems, often based on information supplied by other home care team members. They then work on changing and updating the care plan and its outcomes.

3.Providing continuity of care to and from settings

Managing transitions between institutions such as hospitals and other care facilities to and from the home are also part of a doctor’s job description. This includes making sure there is continuity and consistency in their care.

4.Communicating and Advocating

Home care doctors play an important role in communicating with the patient and other team members. They also participate in home care and family conferences and advocating for the patient.

5. Personally Delivering Treatment During Home Visits

Doctors also sometimes provide medical treatment in the home for their patients such as injections and wound care.

6.Documenting Care

This includes appropriate medical records such as patients’ conditions, tests and other important information.

Physicians and Interdisciplinary Teams Working Together

Doctors work closely in a varied team with other medical professionals. The team can include nurses, occupational therapists, physiotherapists. Collaboration in home health care is essential, and reports from other care professionals help doctors understand how effectively the patient’s treatments and medications are working. This can alert them to the changes or adjustments necessary before problems arise.

Physician Home Visits and Medicare

Many doctors accept Medicare as well as private insurance. Home visits often cost the same as a regular office visit. We can work with our physicians to help finalize your Medicare claim.
