DispatchHealth is bringing back the house call with a modern technology-enabled twist.

Our model lowers cost, improves outcomes and satisfaction by extending the reach of our patient’s current care team. We partner closely with a variety of providers in the market to ensure that we are providing care that is integrated and adds value to the community.
Providers should possess at least 5 years’ experience in the ER, UC or family practice setting. The clinician will provide comprehensive acute care assessments including diagnosis, treatment and post-discharge management of DispatchHealth’s patient population. Assessments may include the performance of laboratory studies, minor procedures, splinting, wound care, suturing, as well as IV fluid and medication administration. In addition, we work hard to ensure that our patients are successful after discharge by facilitating specialist referrals, arranging PCP follow-up and addressing social issues when appropriate.
