For an increasing number of individuals, getting to the hospital or doctor’s office is difficult, if not impossible.
A 2015 study published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that approximately two million people on Medicare were homebound. Another one million people are considered home-limited, meaning they get out occasionally but need assistance to do so.
The difficulty of getting to a medical appointment can cause patients with mobility issues to delay examination until symptoms have worsened significantly. This makes it tough for medical staff to provide timely, effective treatment and dramatically increases healthcare costs.
In-home healthcare services, such as mobile diagnostics, have become more available, so patients living at home, assisted living, senior communities and long term care facilities get the medical care they need and deserve.
ProHealth’s professional diagnostics team helps patients get the diagnostic services they need from the comfort of their home, wherever they call home. Services available include:
- Ultrasound/Doppler Studies
- Cardiac Ultrasound
Our mobile radiology services are conducted by certified technologists who produce high-quality digital images that are reviewed by local radiologists for quick, reliable results.
We also partner with numerous extended care facilities in Northwest Ohio and are the preferred provider to area free-standing hospitals to offer on-site radiology services to their patients.
This form of healthcare spares individuals the stress and injury risk of getting outside the home and to their appointment while allowing for personal attention and care that can result in lower hospital visits and readmissions.
