What is Medical at Home?
Medical at home is a growing service that allows patients the freedom to receive health care in the comfort of their own home. Services can vary and be adjusted to meet the needs of each patient.
According to a study done by AARP, approximately 80% of adults are interested in remaining in their home for as long as possible. That’s roughly 43 million Americans! By 2030, the population aged 50 or older will reach 132 million.
With a growing interest in staying at home, it is important that healthcare providers adjust to meet the needs of these patients.
Independent Pharmacies are Positioned to Help
Independent pharmacies are uniquely positioned to help this growing market. Pharmacists can offer services such as medication adherence, delivery and other services that can be customized to meet the needs of patients who desire medical at home services.
Unlike chain pharmacies or mail-order pharmacies, independent pharmacies can provide personalized care to patients who want to age in place.
