Mobile Medicine Outreach - In-Home Care and Services
Jacob (Jacobo) Flores,M.D. the medical director/owner of Mobile Medicine Outreach (MMO) a home based primary care program serving the homebound patients of Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego counties for 12 years. The homebound consists of human beings suffering from disability, mobility impairment, disruptive behavioral problems, and end of life illness. These medical and/or psychiatric causes can lead to isolation with the result of increased morbidity and mortality. This homebound population has limited medical access confounded by insurmountable obstacles to transportation due to obvious physical and psychiatric illness, stress, and expense.
This is a physician housecall program that returns to the ancient and noble tradition of direct community involvement and serves the medical and/or psychiatric homebound patient to improve their quality of life, reduce cost, and minimize morbidity and mortality. The patients receive personalized treatment of acute disease, exacerbation of chronic illness, relief of suffering, and management of chronic symptoms. MMO is committed to achieve an improved quality of life with improved cost-effectiveness for the homebound patient in culturally sensitive fashion while reducing suffering, controlling symptoms of chronic illness, treatment of acute disease, and if possible restoration of functional capacity.
