Preventive care is medical care that prevents sickness, chronic disease, and other health problems. Many common chronic diseases are preventable if you detect warning signs early. With preventive care, you can treat the problem before it ever starts.
Over time, preventive care saves a great deal of time and money. It can help keep you out of the hospital and allow you to enjoy the best quality of life.
At Redicare Mobile Health Service, preventive care encompasses services such as:
Immunizations Infectious Disease Testing These services often require patients to visit a doctor’s office or clinic, but Redicare Mobile Health Service makes preventive care easy by coming to your home or other convenient location.

School, sports, and employment physicals are also excellent ways to stay aware of any possible health issues and prevent medical surprises.
There are many types of situation-specific preventive care as well. An example of this is purified protein derivative (PPD) skin tests, which check for silent cases of TB.
Redicare Mobile Health Service brings preventive care to you. You can schedule an in-home visit for most preventive care services, but some types of care are also available through telehealth.
For telehealth visits, you get an email or text message prompting you to complete the patient registration process before your visit. Then, you receive a link, which you click 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment time. You’ll see your medical provider and receive guidance virtually.
For home visits, you complete your patient registration forms before the appointment. On the day of your appointment, you receive a two-hour window of time in which your provider arrives at your location.
