Helping Organizations Build Sustainable Home-Based Primary Care Programs

HCCI Consulting Services
Relationship focused. Results driven.

At Home Centered Care Institute, we are committed to transforming health care through sustainable, innovative house call programs that enhance the patient experience, improve health outcomes, and reduce costs.

HCCI is already well known for creating the country’s first-ever comprehensive training curriculum in home-based primary care (HBPC). Our workshops and online courses have helped hundreds of practices across the U.S. enhance their productivity and efficiency, increase provider confidence in caring for medically-complex patients at home, and maximize reimbursement through appropriate coding and billing.

Now, HCCI is pleased to offer affordable consulting services tailored to meet your practice’s specific needs.

Our consultants include:

  • Providers with extensive experience in HBPC
  • Practice managers skilled in running house call programs and recognized with national certifications in coding and medical auditing
  • Other professionals with expertise in strategic planning, marketing, education and training, and quality improvement

In addition, we have established HCCI Centers of Excellence (COEs) for Home-Based Primary Care™ in partnership with leading academic institutions across the U.S. This collaboration provides HCCI and its clients with access to an interdisciplinary cadre of COE faculty who are national leaders and experts in home-based care, and specialists in geriatrics, internal medicine, family practice, and more.
