Urgent Med Housecalls
We are seeking practitioners to staff this innovative and unique work-from-home mobile medical practice:
Urgent Med Housecalls offers highly convenient urgent care, brought to patients, wherever they are, whether in home, hotel room, business, workplace, or elsewhere.
We carry medications, IV fluids, extensive medical equipment, including suturing and splinting supplies, and we bring point-of-care lab tests and, in some locations, even imaging to our patients. Some providers may carry basic examination equipment only.
We typically care for travelers in hotel rooms and many local residents at home. We have visited patients aboard cargo ships, yachts, on film sets, in offices, construction and other work sites, resorts, spas, residential facilities and other locations. Some of our patients are homebound. Most are not.
We treat children and adults.

About Housecall Medicine:
While housecalls are a standard of care in most other countries, they are only recently beginning to make a comeback here in the USA. The resurgence of housecall medicine was triggered by Medicare funding changes in 1998. Mobile medical technologies have since fueled the medical housecall movement. Currently portable xrays, ultrasound, EKG’s, and even instant point-of-care blood testing are available. Housecall providers spend more time with, and therefore have a greater connection with, their patients, than than average non-mobile caregiver. Housecall patients tend to be highly appreciative of mobile medical services.
