Caregiver and senior enjoy each other's company as they look at tablet together

Mobile health services provider DocGo is teaming up with Visiting Physician Services to deliver in-home care to patients in New Jersey.

“DocGo is closing the gaps in healthcare,” Mark Merlin, D.O., DocGo’s chief medical officer, said in a statement. “This partnership with VPS will not only allow us to provide faster, non-emergency care to those in need, but also offer a whole host of new services, filling the market need for rapid safety assessments in patients’ homes.”

DocGo provides rapid, in-home non-emergency mobile medical services. VPS is part of the Visiting Nurse Association Health and is the largest geriatric house call practice in New Jersey that aims to keep seniors in their homes. The partnership will help the elderly receive “last-mile” services that plug into their existing care providers.

“We’re excited about this new partnership as we strive to improve the responsiveness to our most vulnerable patients, helping to keep them comfortably at home,” Alex Binder, Visiting Physicians vice president said.

DocGo currently operates in 26 U.S. states. The company offers a range of services for patients recovering from injuries and illness.
