Care at Home for Patients Has Been Saving Money for Years

As news organizations seem to be focused on the seemingly recent revelation that caring for patients at home saves money, it’s been done this way for years. In fact, tracing the health care industry back to its roots, house calls were the norm, especially in more rural regions of the country.
