"Based on our 2016 Home Visits survey, in which 70 percent of respondents attributed drops in either hospital readmissions or ER visits to house calls, it's not surprising Sun Health also has tapped into the potential of home visits. Using these occasions to assess and address social health determinants such as isolation or substandard housing or nutrition can profoundly impact that patient's health."
