SEA GIRT, NJ, USA, July 30, 2013 --- Visiting medically complex patients at home can shed light on health-related issues that might go undetected during an office visit, reducing the likelihood of unplanned admissions or emergency department visits by these patients, as a new HINfographic from the Healthcare Intelligence Network (HIN) illustrates.

Events that occur during a home visit include explanation of red flags for worsening conditions, medication review and preparation for provider appointments. The 4 Ws of Home Visits details who conducts the home visits, what happens during the visits, when they occur, why they should be done and more.
