Why Home Visits?

When away from home and in a foreign country, medical care can become a serious problem. home visit milano

There are many issues to be considered:

– The Healthcare system probably works in a different way.
– You may not know any doctors to which to refer in the area.
– Communication may become an issue due to a different language spoken by professionals.
– Moving around the city and finding the address of a doctor’s office may represent a further obstacle.

There are also other factors to be considered.

In Italy today, as in the rest of the world, doctors may evaluate as many as 20-40 patients a day.

The quality of medical assistance is suffering from the consequences of a healthcare system that in most cases gives priority to quantity rather than the quality of its services.

The professionals’ care and attention are diluted by the enormous number of persons they have to evaluate so as to fall within standards imposed by a healthcare system that with each passing day seems to become more and more managerial.

We are assisting to a gradual increase in waiting lists for medical care and a parallel reduction in the time dedicated by medical professionals to each patient.

As a result often both patient and medical professional take leave from visits with a feeling of dissatisfaction.

These changes also occur in an era that sees everybody’s life style following increasingly cracking paces and in which the only idea of having to move across the traffic of the city or stop routine daily activities so as to be cured is becoming more and more of an issue.

These problems sometimes become apparently insurmountable when they overlap with the presence of language barriers, difficulties in finding your way in a city that you don’t know and increasingly busy family or work schedules.

By all means, healthcare has improved at an incredible pace throughout the last decades and has become accessible to most in the western countries, but we have the feeling that progress has overlooked an essential aspect of healthcare: the “human” aspect, where patients are sick human beings that deserve to be taken care of in the comfort of their home whenever this is feasible, and by Doctors who are not burned out by budgets, bureaucracy and over-bookings.

We believe in slow medicine. home visit consultants milano

We believe in home care as a means for better healthcare.


We created MEDELIT, the first complete healthcare service providing premiere assistance directly at home, in your office or in your hotel room.

Medelit owned and fully run by physicians and is capable of supplying foreigners visiting or staying in Milan or Rome the quality and variety of services normally found only in the best out-patient clinical settings.

What makes us different is that we provide you with the best healthcare professionals in town, in your own language and, to make it even simpler, we visit, promptly and according to your schedule, directly in your home, hotel or office.

The concept is simple but vital: We Come to You, We deliver according to your wishes.

MEDELIT is the best reference you can have for any medical need during your stay in Milan or Rome.

We fully comprehend the difficulties you may have in reaching healthcare as a foreigner visiting or living in a new city and are therefore committed to providing you with an easily accessible, top-quality and comprehensive healthcare service.

Our healthcare professionals offer careful, compassionate and one-on-one medical assistance, delivered according to your schedule and without your having to undergo endless queues or your having to move from your hotel room, office or home.


Do you remember when the doctor was considered as part of the family?

We in MEDELIT firmly believe that the crowded atmosphere and the rushed timing of medical clinics do not provide the best conditions for a person in need of medical assistance.

We strongly believe that medical assistance as it was in the “old days” (when the family doctor would always see his patients by home visits) is the best, and must therefore not be abandoned.

We actually believe that this kind of medical assistance is the best in terms of results and satisfaction for both patient and healthcare professional.

MEDELIT recaptures the positive aspects of a more “human” and traditional medical assistance and puts them at the center of a service that makes the best use of the most modern technologies available today.
