The day the Tampa Tribune tapped Peter Boling for his view on house calls

In its June 10 edition, the Tampa Tribune reported on the growing interest in the potential for house calls to save costs as well as improve care for those patients who have great difficulty in getting to a doctor’s office.

The article, Medicare, private insurers exploring house calls to save money, includes the view of Internal Medicine Professor Peter Boling, M.D., who helped craft language for the Independence at Home Act that was built into last year’s health care reform legislation.

In the article, Boling lists three ways that house calls could benefit patients and insurers. “By going to [patients], you make it much more possible for them to have the care that they need, when they need it,” he told the Tampa Tribune.
