QUOTE ATTRIBUTABLE TO MELANIE MATTHEWS, HIN EXECUTIVE VP AND COO:
"Visiting medically complex patients at home can shed light on a plethora of health-related issues that might go undetected during an office visit, such as medication problems. Almost 80 percent of respondents to our 2013 Home Visits survey are taking time to see high-risk individuals in the home setting, a strategy that has the very pleasant side effect of improving patient satisfaction."
