Mobile Physician Services, is a medical house call practice that is comprised of doctors and nurse practitioners who make house calls to homebound patients. The practice was established in 2006 to fill an unmet need for medical care among patients who were unable to leave their homes or who had difficulty getting to a physician’s office. Often these patients had complex chronic conditions that required ongoing medical care. Without proper care, their condition would worsen, and the patients eventually would require emergency care or admission to a hospital – at a high cost to both patients and payers.
