HCCI Selects Illinois House Call Project Cohort 2

The goal of the cohort is to collectively enroll and serve 3,000 new homebound patients by 2026, foster high-performing home-based primary care (HBPC) practices to improve patient outcomes, raise awareness of HBPC's value across Illinois, and gain insights into value-based payment opportunities for home-based medical care programs.

New Infographic: House Calls Improve Care Quality and Bottom Line

Using Home-Based Primary Care to Improve Quality of Care & The Bottom Line

When Rush University Medical Center in Chicago decided to re-engineer its delivery systems to address population health, reduce health inequities, and combat chronic diseases while controlling healthcare costs, they connected with the Home Centered Care Institute. Together, they launched the innovative Rush@Home house call program.


Based on a six-month study, the Rush@Home program achieved the following:

• 34% potential lower cost

• 18% fewer hospitalizations

• 21% reduction in ED visits

• 4.6% fewer readmissions


Total Program Savings

• Total Actual Six-Month Savings: $761,000

• Total Potential Annualized Savings: Over $1.5 million


Based on these results, a program with 200 MSSP patients would generate over $3 million in savings.
