As a Landmark Health Provider, now a part of the Optum family, you visit your panel of patients in the comfort of their own homes.

By observing your patients in their homes, you will gain valuable insights into aspects of their lives – sometimes subtle, but always important - that otherwise may never be revealed in a traditional care setting. You will have the resources of our custom electronic medical records (EMR) program, comprehensive mobile medical technology system, and dedicated technical support department.
