AHA’s The Value Initiative is providing new resources to support hospitals’ and health systems’ efforts to adopt hospital-at-home care for patients who need acute-level care but are considered stable enough to be safely monitored from their homes. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Nov. 25 launched the Acute Hospital Care At Home program to provide hospitals expanded flexibility to care for patients in their homes. The Creating Value by Bringing Hospital Care Home issue brief explores how the emerging model can reduce costs, improve outcomes and enhance patient experience. The brief features examples from AHA members, including how hospitals and health systems have utilized the hospital-at-home model during the COVID-19 pandemic. Additional examples can be found here.
