“During the 1960s, patients would make a phone call and the doctor would arrive at the doorstep, black bag in hand, eager to serve. This changed in the mid to late-1960s as doctors developed group practices. As medical care expanded to include technology-based studies and specialty referrals, care became more hospital-centered. Prior to World War II, 40 percent of patient encounters were in the home. By the mid-sixties, only 4 to 9 percent of patient encounters were house calls.”
As many of you know history is known to repeat itself. Astia Health is bringing back the house call with a modern day twist. Astia Health is on the cutting edge in the future of medicine. Our providers have experienced firsthand what the problems are in health care today. Most of them have worked in ER settings where these problems are experienced on a daily basis.
Astia Health essentially has developed an urgent care on wheels, bringing you health care directly to the location of your choice. We have skilled paramedics and nurses with years of experience who quite literally bring the Dr./PA/NP to you.
