In these challenging times, there is much to worry about. With Insight Home Physicians, though, you won't have to worry about the risks of going to a doctors office or how to get there.

For many seniors with limited mobility, visiting a physician office is difficult or impossible. Barriers to quality care can lead to unnecessary hospitalizations and emergency room visits. During the current pandemic, hospital and clinic visits bring additional risks, especially for elders with multiple medical problems. We bring comprehensive primary care to you in the comfort and safety of your own home.
We will manage your chronic medical conditions, refill medications, make sick visits, order services and will coordinate with community agencies and specialists to provide you comprehensive team based care. You will be able to reach us 24/7 by phone at 215-930-6630.
Telemedicine visits are conducted via a two-way video chat using your personal smartphone or tablet. For patients who have not used telemedicine previously, our staff will provide personalized one-on-one training. Telemedicine visits can be used for the treatment of new urgent complaints as well as for the ongoing management of chronic medical conditions. Telemedicine allows us to rapidly respond to new problems while providing more intensive ongoing management of chronic problems.
For select medical conditions we provide intravenous and other treatments that normally require hospitalization. Hospital at home is provided by a coordinated multidisciplinary care team and includes daily nurse and physician contacts and state of the art remote monitoring capability. Diagnoses for which Hospital at Home might be an option include congestive heart failure (CHF) exacerbation, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), pneumonia, cellulitis and dehydration.
Transitional care is intensive, multi-disciplinary management immediately after discharge from a hospital or nursing home. Patient care is often fragmented during these periods and communication between providers may by inadequate. There is significant risk for medication or other errors, which could lead to hospital readmission. Elements of transitional care include
Contact with physician within 48h of discharge
Comprehensive physician visit within 7 days of discharge
Careful review of discharge documentation
Close coordination with ancillary services such as therapy services and visiting nurses
Follow-up of pending results or scheduled appointments with other providers
We are one of the only home-based primary care practices in the country who use portable ultrasound. We use a handheld probe to look at the heart, lungs and other internal structures and this leads to more accurate diagnosis and precise treatment, especially for conditions such as CHF, where accurate determination of volume status is critical.
