It is not a surprising fact that people don’t like to go to hospitals. Is it due to the excessive bills? Is it due to the fear of the unknown? Well, it’s all of the above and moreover, people sometimes have to travel a lot of miles to get access to quality healthcare. Access to hospital care is a big issue for people especially in rural areas and countries that are sparsely populated.
, a clinical researcher at the University of California, said that one-third of the patients over 70 and more than half of the patients over 85 leave the hospital more disabled than when they came in. According to statistics in the US (urban area), the median travel distance to the nearest high volume hospital is 7.6 miles, and for the rural area, it’s 31.1 miles. People avoid going to hospitals because of these long distances. Wouldn’t it be nicer if the care comes to your home? Wouldn’t it be nice if you are treated at the convenience of your own bed?
Healthcare at your doorsteps is a newly emerging concept where doctors and physicians use portable and compact medical devices to treat patients in their home. These devices help them to check blood pressure, sugar level, and even ECG just by the click of a button. The presence of such advanced technology in the market helps patients to avoid going to the hospital for small tests. There are caregivers and health coaches who can come to your doorstep to administer medical drugs and to take test samples. Now, elderly people can get the treatment at the comfort of their home, with no need for them to travel for hours to get treated. According to statistics, there are more than 617 million seniors (people over the age of 65) in the world today, and with 10,000 more becoming elderly every day, there is an increasing demand for exceptional at-home health care.
Who is benefited by at-home health care services?
Majority of the people believe that at-home healthcare is for those who are bedridden due to their illness, but there are various other reasons why people need at-home health care like
