As health care technology becomes more advanced and society looks for ways to reduce health care costs, there are more health services being provided in a patient’s home than ever before – from chemotherapy infusions to cardiac or wound care. Prescriptions can be delivered to a patient’s home. Even rehabilitation services can occur in the home.
Public health researchers have studied health outcomes and determined that social determinants of health, such as where you live, your education level, access to healthy food and other factors can impact health. HCGH offers other support services through our Community Care Team and Journey to Better Health program, such as transportation, food and help with medications.
