After steadily gaining steam over the last decade, in-home primary care models have reached a critical turning point in 2020.

A handful of in-home primary care businesses have received multimillion-dollar investments to expand across the U.S., for example. At the same time, the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is testing out new ways for primary care providers to treat their patients in the home setting.

Part of the Franklin, Tennessee-based GuideWell, PopHealthCare is positioning itself to capitalize on that momentum. To help scale its national network, the in-home primary care and risk-adjustment organization announced the hiring of Dr. Christopher Dodd as its new chief medical officer at the end of September.
