Research

A large body of evidence spanning over 20 years shows that Home-Based Primary Care (HBPC), as applied in the IAH demonstration, enhances quality of care and reduces cost for seriously ill patients. Two major peer-reviewed studies were published in 2014:

  • The Veteran’s Administration (VA’s) Home Based Primary Care (HBPC) program reduced costs by 12% ($5,000/ patient-year) and achieved an 83% positive patient satisfaction rating.
  • A study in fee-for service Medicare showed a 17% annual cost reduction ($4,000 / patient- year) with similar mortality outcomes to usual care.
