ABSTRACT
The article reports on the increasing number of house calls by American physicians. The "Journal of the American Medical Association" revealed that the annual number of house calls doctors are making has increased 43% from 1998-2004. These increases are due to the aging of the American population, advances in portable medical devices, improved information technology, and a 1998 change in Medicare increasing reimbursement for house calls.
