Home-based primary care has tremendous utility for homebound patients and those who have serious functional limitations. Patients who utilize home-based primary care have significantly lower rates of hospital admission and 30-day readmissions. Incorporating a home-health visit into the Family Medicine Clerkship rotation for MS3s will help medical students understand the importance of primary care while also learning about a patient's unique environment.
