The American College of Physicians believes that physicians should become more familiar with what home health care services are available and more actively involved in the treatment and management of patients at home. Changing needs of homebound patients and the necessity for treatments to adjust to changing levels of patient self-sufficiency necessitate that physicians provide ongoing supervision of their homebound patients. The American College of Physicians encourages internists, in particular, as primary care physicians specializing in the health care needs of adults, to take a leadership role in the provision of home health care.
