Q: Is technology bringing back the concept of doctor house calls?

Yes- while house calls may seem outdated, they are actually a great option to help older adults and others with mobility issues to get the care they need. They don’t miss appointments due to lack of transportation, and they avoid the stress that can come with leaving the house. Companies like Heal, Dose Healthcare, and Doctors Making House Calls are using technology to let patients schedule on-demand house calls, and to coordinate doctors’ schedules.
