HIN's home visits e-survey, conducted in August 2013, captured data on how individuals are identified to receive home visits, the components of a home visit, the greatest challenge of home visits in a population, and much more. According to the 155 healthcare companies who responded, the top five conductors of a home visit are:

  • Case/care manager: 33.7 percent

  • Home health worker: 20.2 percent

  • Nurse practitioner: 16.3 percent

  • Social worker: 14.4 percent

  • Multidisciplinary team: 13.5 percent
