Sequoia believes that patients shouldn’t have their quality of life limited by illness, or access to convenient care be a hindrance to their health and wellbeing. As a leader in telehealth and concierge medical care, Sequoia has made high-quality, hospital-grade health care accessible, convenient and affordable, right from the comfort of the patient’s own home.
This quarter, Sequoia discusses its convenient ‘House Calls’ program, empowering patient independence and providing hospital-level care, with at-home visits from licensed medical professionals.
Access to Convenient Medical Care: a growing challenge in America
Across America, the healthcare system has been stretched to its limits, making access to convenient care an increasing struggle for patients. Add to that the economic challenges exacerbated by the global pandemic, and many individuals are simply going without the medical services they desperately need.
According to research published in several studies, including that in the Journal of Community Health (2013 Oct;38(5):976-93), between 3-67% of the sampled population cities transportation barriers as the most common reason for not getting the care they need. Other studies have shown that nearly 30% of all patients struggle with getting rides to and from the doctor.
Lack of Transpiration Results in:
- Missed or rescheduled appointments
- Delayed treatment and care
- Missed or delayed medication
- Reduced management of chronic illness
- An increase in worsening health outcomes
Many individuals requiring care either don’t have their own transportation, or are unable to drive themselves to and from appointments. A seemingly basic necessity, it is often difficult for family and friends to continually schedule time off of work, coordinating to accommodate frequent medical appointments for their loved ones.
Convenient Care: Certified Providers at Home
Understanding the evolving needs of the aging population, and those struggling with chronic illnesses, Sequoia sought to create services that would enable such individuals to get the care they need, all without leaving the comfort of their homes.
The House Calls Program – a better, more convenient way
Doctor visits are inconvenient, interrupting the busy lives of both the patient and the patient’s companion or driver. In some cases, this inconvenience is enough for patients to postpone care and delay medication. In others, it means re-arranging schedules, taking valuable time off of work, and an undue burden on all involved.
With Sequoia’s House Calls Program, Texans in need can receive hospital-grade health care right from the comfort of their own home. From one of the most trusted names in concierge medicine, comes the House Calls program, a convenient, high-quality, at-home healthcare visit that’s just a phone call away.
With visits conducted by licensed medical professionals, patients can get the help they need on their own terms, in an environment that they’re comfortable in, and without the need for arranging transportation to and from a hospital or clinic.
Medical Professionals Available for House Calls Include:
- Licensed medical doctors
- Registered nurse practitioners
- Licensed vocational nurses

- Registered dieticians
The Benefits of the House Calls Program
Greater Independence: Patients often cite an improved feeling of independence, not having to rely on others to get to and from the doctor’s office. The House Calls Program empowers individuals to live an independent life, with a schedule they are in control of.
Better Patient Outcomes: A 2016 study conducted by UCLA researchers and published in the Journal of Medical Care demonstrated that patients (especially elder adults) recovered faster with fewer complications when treated at home vs in the hospital.
Convenience and Relief for Family Caregivers: At home healthcare can offer family and friends much-needed relief from the daily routine of caring for a loved one. The Home Call Program can alleviate the physical and emotional burden carried by family caregivers, providing them with both support and peace of mind.
Can Prevent Costly Hospital Visits: In-home healthcare can aid with the effective management of health conditions at home, offering appointments, prescriptions, monitoring and education.
