What is HouseCall Connect?

House Call is a physician designed and tested online tool that links patients to providers through a web portal to remotely monitor patient health status and improve patient outcomes and disease prevention. By using this telehealth tool, providers can make “house calls,” extending their clinical reach by providing a new point of service for clinicians to connect with their patients, especially patients suffering from serious chronic diseases where there are significant advantages from being closely monitored.
