At EG Healthcare, we believe in treating our patients with the kindness they deserve, with no compromise on the overall healthcare experience. Our primary healthcare professionals operate on the frontlines of healthcare. We extend this outside of our primary care practice office to treat seniors in the comfort of their own homes. We are bringing back the doctor’s house call only seen in yesteryear movies for seniors. Our parents dedicated their lives to us, and it’s time that we return that love ensuring their safety and comfort.
We developed House Calls for Seniors to work with and in addition to your primary care provider. Our practice is not designed to replace the need to visit your primary care doctor. We are able to handle all of your needs ranging from vaccine administration to well visits to preventative care. Our providers also cover sick visits, chronic disease management, and palliative care.
Our goal is that the patient gets the right care, at the right time, in the right environment by the proper healthcare professional.
What is Primary Care?
Primary care or primary healthcare involves a range of day-to-day healthcare services, the same as a general practitioner.
Primary care services are often the first point of contact with the healthcare system for ongoing management of illness and prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of health concerns.
Benefits of Primary Care At Home
The US’s adult population is forecasted to outnumber the younger population by 2030, indicating a pronounced increase in homebound and home-limited people every year. Home-based primary care is expected to be a lifesaver for these patients who, on most occasions, need an ambulance or an emergency department to address any emergencies.
Also, as per the National Center for Biotechnology Information, individuals with primary care support save 33% in healthcare than their peers who rely only on specialists.
Some additional benefits of home-based primary healthcare are:
- Easy access to health services
- Improved quality of life and comfort
- Early detection & management of health concerns
- Reduced need for specialist care
