Home Health Care Integration Program

The Development of Home Medicine:

Many elders living at home or patients with chronic diseases have limited mobility due to illness or age, and they cannot travel far.

To allow the elderly and patients who are inconvenienced to go out to see a doctor to receive care at home, the government has implemented a national health insurance home medical care integration plan. Medical staff forms a home-integrated care team to actively visit the elderly or those with limited mobility. Provides complete and continuous medical care in the patient's home.

The services provided by the national health insurance home medical care integration plan include the care stages of home medical care, severe home medical care, and palliative care, and provide services and care referrals according to the needs of patients. In this way, the inconvenience of movement and transportation of patients is reduced, and it is hoped that the number of days people spend in the hospital can be reduced so that people can rest at home with peace of mind.
