UT Southwestern's COVE Program Receives 2020 "Leaders in Clinical Excellence" Award

Seniors need better primary care access and fewer hospital admissions. UT Southwestern's geriatric specialists target both concerns with COVE – an award-winning house call program that delivers precision medicine to people who need it most.

UT Southwestern's COVE (Care of the Vulnerable Elderly) program provides home-based primary care for chronically ill, elderly patients. HBPC programs like COVE significantly reduce 30-day hospital readmissions. 

The UTSW Home-Based Primary Care Program provides an interdisciplinary approach to the care of the vulnerable elderly with multiple chronic conditions. Patient care is provided by clinicians that integrate the efforts of caregivers and community resources for those over the age of 65 with functional or cognitive impairment.
