The virtual <a href="https://event-app5.eventpower.com/event_app/user/login/21AHA-LEADERSH" target="_blank">AHA Leadership Summit</a> produced a wealth of insights about the path forward on transformation. Here are key lessons from two sessions.</p> <h2>The Next Frontier in Care Delivery: Hospital-at-Home (HaH)</h2> <p><img alt="A clinician takes a patient's pulse in a hospital-at-home setting." data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="e8662f6d-bf1f-445c-aac7-7a3bd5dfee83" src="/sites/default/files/inline-images/2ms_080321_item1_HaH_190%5B4%5D_1976809.jpg" style="padding-right: 10px; padding-bottom: 10px;" class="align-left" />If there is a silver lining in the pandemic, it’s that it rapidly accelerated hospital-at-home programs. The Centers for Medicare &amp; Medicaid Services (CMS) recognized the potential for these programs with a waiver last November. Today, roughly 130 early adopter hospitals have applied for and received the waiver to provide hospital-level care in the home.</p> <p>Presenters from Mount Sinai Health System, the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and Brigham Health noted that results from ongoing domestic research in controlled, randomized trials largely mirrors impressive findings from decades of international studies on hospital-at-home programs. Namely, HaH programs can sharply reduce costs while maintaining quality and safety levels and lowering readmissions with improved patient experience.</p> <p>And while questions remain about whether reimbursement for these services will continue once the public emergency abates, Bruce Leff, M.D., professor of medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, believes hospital-at-home programs are poised to expand.</p> <h2>4 Tips for Expanding or Launching an HaH Program</h2> <h3>Explore Low-Hanging Fruit</h3> <p>Build on your foundations in home-based primary care and identify conditions you can readily treat in the home before branching out into more complex situations such as patients coming off complicated chemotherapy regimens, says Albert Siu, M.D., director, Mount Sinai at Home, Mount Sinai Health System.</p> <h3>Eschew Small Pilot Programs</h3> <p>It takes just as much work to build an HaH program as it does a pilot, Leff notes. Anticipate that it may take 100-200 meetings to coordinate and develop the logistics for a successful program.</p> <h3>Expand Your Focus</h3> <p>Mount Sinai initially focused on six conditions in its program, says Linda DeCherrie, M.D., clinical director, Mount Sinai at Home, Mount Sinai Health System. Today, leaders focus on the treatment plan, not conditions. “We know what we can and can’t operationalize in the home and it’s not necessarily based on the diagnosis,” she says.</p> <h3>Rally Support</h3> <p>Every department in the organization should know about this effort and should be brought in to help support the program, says David Levine, M.D., assistant professor of medicine, Brigham Health, Harvard Medical School.</p> <p>Looking for resources to learn more about HaH programs or to support your efforts?

But what if some acutely ill people could receive high-quality medical care in the comfort of their own homes? And what if that care actually led to better outcomes, reduced costs and enhanced patient experience?</p> <p>What was once a small but mighty contingent of health care systems providing “hospital-at-home” care before the pandemic has grown into a larger movement. With this model, hospitals across the country are “admitting” patients to their own homes for acute care with excellent results. As highlighted in AHA’s recent <a href="/system/files/media/file/2020/12/issue-brief-creating-value-by-bringing-hospital-care-home_0.pdf">issue brief on hospital-at-home</a>, patients receiving this care have a 20% reduction in mortality, were three times less likely to be admitted to an emergency department than usual care patients and have higher satisfaction with their care. And these results are achieved at a 25% lower cost of care.</p> <blockquote> <h4>The COVID-19 pandemic has spurred a number of innovations in health care delivery that have the potential to positively alter how care is provided in the years ahead. Hospital-at-home is one of those promising models.</h4> </blockquote> <p>As we move into a new era of health care delivery, hospital-at-home is an innovative model for providing quality, person-centered care. It gives hospitals an opportunity to be leaders in this space and shape what health care can look like for years to come.</p> <h2>Value and the Patient Experience</h2> <p>Hospital-at-home programs make acute, hospital-level care available to patients in their homes. This model of care is well suited for patients in need of hospital-level care that have conditions with well-defined treatment protocols, such as pneumonia, congestive heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), diabetes or cellulitis.</p> <p>Patients are consistently connected to their care team through a combination of in-person visits, video visits and continuous biometric monitoring via telehealth technologies. When health professionals visit the patient, they can provide a wide array of services including diagnostic studies, treatments and therapies that normally could only be delivered at a hospital.</p> <p>Over the past few months, I have connected with leading hospital-at-home programs from across the country about their experiences. While I encourage you to listen to the <a href="https://www.aha.org/hospitalathome" target="_blank">podcasts</a> to learn more about how these hospitals have implemented innovative care models that have demonstrated improved value — and to catch these leaders’ enthusiasm and passion for their work — here’s a glimpse into these programs.</p> <ul> <li style="margin-bottom: 10px;"><strong><a href="https://www.aha.org/webinar-recordings/2020-09-28-value-initiative-how-home-hospital-model-improves-value-during-covid" target="_blank">University of Utah Health’s Huntsman Cancer Institute</a></strong> offers the Huntsman at Home service to oncology patients, enabling them to leave the hospital sooner or avoid being admitted to a hospital altogether. Huntsman at Home patients had 48% fewer ED visits and 48% lower cumulative charges for clinical services. The health system is breaking new ground with an innovative rural pilot in eastern Utah: A local paramedic travels to the patient’s home while a hospital-based physician joins the visit by video conference to help guide the paramedic’s care services.</li> <li style="margin-bottom: 10px;"><strong><a href="https://www.aha.org/system/files/media/file/2021/01/value-initiative-case-study-hospital-at-home-presbyterian-healthcare-services-albuquerque-nm.pdf" target="_blank">Presbyterian Healthcare Services</a></strong> has been providing hospital-at-home care across New Mexico since 2008. Patient satisfaction scores are at 99%, and infections, falls and medication errors have been close to zero. The cost of care is 42% less than a hospital admission.</li> <li><strong><a href="https://www.aha.org/case-studies/2018-09-12-brigham-and-womens-hospital-boston" target="_blank">Brigham Health</a></strong> admits eligible patients from the ED into their homes in the Boston area. Home hospital patients have 38% lower direct costs and also reported less anxiety, more control and more physical activity. Moreover, the 30-day readmission rate for home hospital patients is 7%, versus 23% for those receiving inpatient care.</li> </ul> <p>As hospital-at-home programs continue to grow, I anticipate that we’ll hear more stories about how this model provides value for hospitals and the patients they serve. For a deeper dive into the nuts and bolts of adopting a program, explore the recent webinar series from our partners at the <a href="https://hahusersgroup.org/events/" target="_blank">Hospital at Home Users Group</a>.</p> <h2>Paying for Hospital-at-Home</h2> <p>Despite the promise of hospital-at-home for high-value care delivery, most payers do not yet cover the service. The Centers for Medicare &amp; Medicaid Services signaled its support for this model in November 2020 with a <a href="/special-bulletin/2020-11-30-summary-new-cms-flexibilities-acute-hospital-care-home-program">new waiver</a> for an Acute Hospital Care at Home program, but it is designed to last only through the COVID-19 public health emergency. Hospitals that have successfully navigated the payment challenge include the Veterans Health Administration network as well as health systems that have their own insurance plans.</p> <p>There is reason to hope that there may be changes to how hospital-at-home is paid for. Recently, Intermountain Healthcare, Ascension, Amazon Care and several home-based health companies formed <a href="https://movinghealthhome.org/" target="_blank">Moving Health Home</a>. This coalition is working to change state and federal policies to enable the home to be a point of clinical service after the pandemic subsides.</p> <p>In addition, Humana recently became the <a href="/aha-center-health-innovation-market-scan/2021-02-16-hospital-home-gains-momentum-added">first national payer to take on hospital-at-home</a>. The health insurance company is partnering with DispatchHealth to deliver in-home emergency and acute care to Humana’s 8.4 million Medicare patients.</p> <h2>A Promising Model for the Future</h2> <p>The COVID-19 pandemic has spurred a number of innovations in health care delivery that have the potential to positively alter how care is provided in the years ahead. Hospital-at-home is one of those promising models.</p> <p>To support hospitals on this journey, the AHA is developing a growing body of resources. <a href="/hospitalathome">Learn more</a> about how hospitals are launching hospital-at-home programs to improve value for their patients and community.</p> <p><em>Julia Resnick is a senior program manager, strategic initiatives, at the American Hospital Association.</em></p> </div> <div class="field_author"> <span>Julia Resnick</span> </div> <div class="field_topics"> <div><a href="/topics/aha-center-health-innovation" class="topic" hreflang="en">AHA Center for Health Innovation</a></div> <div><a href="/topics/hospital-home" hreflang="en">Hospital at Home</a></div> <div><a href="/topics/novel-coronavirus-sars-cov-2covid-19" hreflang="en">Novel Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19)</a></div> <div><a href="/topics/covid-19-caring-patients-and-communities" hreflang="en">COVID-19: Caring for Patients and Communities</a></div> </div> <div class="field_type">#HealthCareInnovation Thursday Blog</div> Wed, 21 Apr 2021 16:39:48 +0000 Matthew Diener 676916 at https://www.aha.org Amazon, Intermountain and Ascension Lead Push to Expand Home-Based Care https://www.aha.org/aha-center-health-innovation-market-scan/2021-03-16-amazon-intermountain-and-ascension-lead-push <span class="title">Amazon, Intermountain and Ascension Lead Push to Expand Home-Based Care</span> <span class="uid"><span>Matthew Diener</span></span> <span class="created">Mar 16, 2021 - 06:00 AM</span> <div class="body"><div class="container row"> <div class="row"> <div class="col-md-8"> <p><img alt="Amazon, Intermountain and Ascension Lead Push to Expand Home-Based Care.

The coalition wants to change state and federal policy to enable the home to be a point of clinical service.</p> <p>MHH also plans to advocate for:</p> <ul><li>Expanding services covered in a home-based setting.</li> <li>Retaining “Hospitals Without Walls” site-of-care flexibility to support home-based hospital services.</li> <li>Bundled payment models for extended care in the home.</li> <li>Encouraging greater flexibility for home-based services to meet commercial and Medicare Advantage network standards.</li> </ul><p>Patients across the country have seen the benefit of hospital-at-home care, particularly during COVID-19. In Intermountain’s <a href="https://intermountainconnectcare.org/landing.htm" target="_blank">Connect Care</a> program, 90% of Medicare participants preferred the hospital-at-home program to traditional hospital care, Kerry Palakanis, executive director of the program, told <a href="https://www.modernhealthcare.com/home-health/intermountain-ascension-push-permanent-cms-home-care-reimbursement-changes" target="_blank">Modern Healthcare</a>. He added that preliminary data from patients who opted for home-based care show the same, if not better, outcomes. Explore <a href="https://www.aha.org/hospitalathome" target="_balnk">AHA’s hospital-at-home resources</a> for more insights into how hospitals are implementing this innovative care model.</p> <p>Amazon Care’s participation in the coalition is noteworthy as the online retail giant continues to expand on offering home-based care options to some of its employees. After piloting a virtual care clinic and home-based care services in 2018 for its Seattle-area employees, the company last September began scaling the Amazon Care program to include all employees and their dependents in Washington state. The program, which is contracted with Washington-based Care Medical, allows Amazon Care enrollees to coordinate visits from a mobile care nurse, who can conduct in-person health exams, testing and treatment, among other services.</p> <p>Just how far the online retailer will go in expanding Amazon Care remains to be seen, but the company reportedly has been quietly gearing up to do business in 17 more states, according to a recent <a href="https://www.statnews.com/2021/03/03/amazon-care-medical-telemedicine-platform/" target="_blank">Stat report</a>. The company has not responded to questions about whether Amazon Care services will continue to be limited to Amazon employees.</p> </div> <div class="col-md-4"> <p style="margin-top:30px;"><a href="/center" title="Visit the AHA Center for Health Innovation landing page."><img alt="AHA Center for Health Innovation logo" data-entity-="" data-entity-uuid="7ade6b12-de98-4d0b-965f-a7c99d9463c5" src="/sites/default/files/inline-images/logo-aha-innovation-center-color-sm.jpg" style="max-width: 80%;" type="file" class="align-center" /></a></p> <a href="/center/form/innovation-subscription"><img alt="" data-entity-type="" data-entity-uuid="" src="/sites/default/files/2019-04/Market_Scan_Call_Out_360x300.png" /></a></div> </div> </div> <style type="text/css"> <!--/*--><![CDATA[/* ><!--*/ <!--/*--><![CDATA[/* ><!--*/ .field_featured_image { position: absolute; overflow: hidden; clip: rect(0 0 0 0); height: 1px; width: 1px; margin: -1px; padding: 0; border: 0; } .featured-image{ position: absolute; overflow: hidden; clip: rect(0 0 0 0); height: 1px; width: 1px; margin: -1px; padding: 0; border: 0; } /*--><!]]]]><![CDATA[>*/ /*--><!]]>*/ </style></div> <div class="field_media_featured_image"><article> <div class="field_media_image"> <img src="/sites/default/files/2021-03/ms_031621_item2_HomeCare_190_1851046.jpg" width="190" height="127" alt="Amazon, Intermountain and Ascension Lead Push to Expand Home-Based Care.

Hospitals can “admit” qualified patients into their homes, where they receive acute, hospital-level care through a combination of telemedicine, remote patient monitoring and in-person visits.</p> <p>In November 2020, the Centers for Medicare &amp; Medicaid Services recognized hospital-at-home care by launching the <a href="/special-bulletin/2020-11-30-summary-new-cms-flexibilities-acute-hospital-care-home-program" target="_blank">Acute Hospital Care at Home Program</a>. The waiver program allows approved providers the flexibility to provide acute medical services in patients’ homes.

As many hospitals and health systems are still planning their strategy, Humana recently became the first national payer to stake its place in the market.</p> <p>Humana is teaming up with in-home service provider DispatchHealth to deliver in-home emergency and acute care to Humana’s 8.4 million Medicare patients. Humana initially will provide DispatchHealth’s services to enrollees in Denver and Tacoma, Wash., before expanding into cities in Texas, Arizona and Nevada by year-end. The home health care provider will offer patients 24/7 remote monitoring by an internal medicine physician specialized in ED training, a physician’s assistant and a nurse’s assistant, along with daily visits from providers, including bedside nursing. Dispatch’s team will go beyond meeting members’ medical needs by addressing social needs, coordinating pharmacy deliveries, offering physical and respiratory therapy, imaging services and more. </p><p> </p> <p>Through its partnership with Dispatch, Humana is looking to expand significantly beyond the 550,000 home health visits it conducts each year. Humana eventually plans to offer the service to its 16.8 million enrollees, including Medicaid and commercial members.</p> <p>For more resources on hospital-at-home, visit the <a href="/hospitalathome" target="_blank">AHA website</a>.</p> </div> <div class="col-md-4"> <p style="margin-top:30px;"><a href="/center" title="Visit the AHA Center for Health Innovation landing page."><img alt="AHA Center for Health Innovation logo" data-entity-="" data-entity-uuid="7ade6b12-de98-4d0b-965f-a7c99d9463c5" src="/sites/default/files/inline-images/logo-aha-innovation-center-color-sm.jpg" style="max-width: 80%;" type="file" class="align-center" /></a></p> <a href="/center/form/innovation-subscription"><img alt="" data-entity-type="" data-entity-uuid="" src="/sites/default/files/2019-04/Market_Scan_Call_Out_360x300.png" /></a></div> </div> </div> <style type="text/css"> <!--/*--><![CDATA[/* ><!--*/ <!--/*--><![CDATA[/* ><!--*/ .field_featured_image { position: absolute; overflow: hidden; clip: rect(0 0 0 0); height: 1px; width: 1px; margin: -1px; padding: 0; border: 0; } .featured-image{ position: absolute; overflow: hidden; clip: rect(0 0 0 0); height: 1px; width: 1px; margin: -1px; padding: 0; border: 0; } /*--><!]]]]><![CDATA[>*/ /*--><!]]>*/ </style></div> <div class="field_media_featured_image"><article> <div class="field_media_image"> <img src="/sites/default/files/2021-02/ms_021621_item1_Disruption_620%5B1%5D_1823446.jpg" width="620" height="381" alt="Hospital-at-Home Gains Momentum with Added Flexibilities, New Entrants.

As millions of Americans sheltered in place, particularly those with chronic or emerging serious diseases, it wasn’t simply a matter of convenience for patients to connect to and capture and share vital signs and other critical health information with their doctors from home — it was a necessity.</p> <p>And it appears there is no going back, especially since so many patients have now experienced the benefits of more convenient ways to monitor their health conditions. Sixty percent of health care organizations will invest in virtual care technology in 2021, according to a recent BDO survey of health care chief financial officers.</p> <p>Responding to this growing demand, tech companies large and small have been working feverishly on devices for the home that can help patients not only better monitor their health, but also detect diseases earlier.</p> <p>Many took part in last week’s <a href="https://digital.ces.tech/home" target="_blank">Consumer Electronics Show</a>, introducing new digital health devices. While these solutions are aimed at consumers, and health data from them isn’t automatically shared with providers, they help illustrate a growing trend of consumer demand — the patient home as the center of care.</p> <h2><img alt="BioIntelliSense BioSticker" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="b99524b2-17c6-490a-90db-56d21eff9ea6" src="/sites/default/files/inline-images/ms_011721_item1_BioSticker_1797741.jpg" style="padding-right: 10px; padding-bottom: 10px;" class="align-left" />BioIntelliSense BioSticker</h2> <p>Consumers and caregivers alike have always valued devices that monitor vital signs but, as the pandemic has shown, there is a need for greater information in areas like respiratory function. One new <a href="https://www.usa.philips.com/healthcare/services/population-health-management/patient-engagement/biointellisense-biosticker" target="_blank">wearable sensor</a> from <a href="https://www.usa.philips.com/" target="_blank">Philips</a> can track resting respiratory rate, along with other physiological biometrics and symptomatic events such as cough frequency, skin temperature, resting heart rate, body position and activity levels.</p> <h2><img alt="HealthU" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="eddf029f-555c-46d6-b247-d10063b8f62f" src="/sites/default/files/inline-images/ms_011721_item1_HealthyU_1797742.jpg" style="padding-left: 10px; padding-bottom: 10px;" class="align-right" />HealthyU</h2> <p>Other digital health technologies are aimed at making it easier for patients to track and report their conditions. The <a href="https://healthyu.ai/" target="_blank">HealthyU</a> from <a href="https://hdmedicalgroup.com/" target="_blank">HD Medical</a> remotely monitors multiple vital signs while providing a built-in, seven-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) stethoscope. The device can track lung sounds, heart rate, temperature, respiratory rate and blood pressure without a cuff.</p> <h2><img alt="Themis Smart Mirror and CareOS app." data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="856f4d6d-a2a4-4e4f-b3eb-f372ea6a5e66" src="/sites/default/files/inline-images/ms_011721_item1_CareOS_1797744.jpg" style="padding-right: 10px; padding-bottom: 10px;" class="align-left" />Themis Smart Mirror</h2> <p>A new smart mirror acts as a personal wellness assistant to perform skin and mood analysis and visual acuity tests, and can provide smart alerts, daily temperature checks and fertility-cycle reminders. The <a href="https://www.care-os.com/themis/index.html" target="_blank">Themis</a> device collects data from several sensors, including an RGB camera, infrared temperature sensor and an ultraviolet light for skin analysis. The device can link with ECG trackers, smart scales and digital showerheads for a fully integrated bathroom.</p> <h2><img alt="FallCall Detect App" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="ca8c12df-3f7d-4b2d-a1b9-36c36e481cd2" src="/sites/default/files/inline-images/ms_011721_item1_FallCall_1797743.jpg" style="padding-left: 10px; padding-bottom: 10px;" class="align-right" />FallCall Detect App</h2> <p>Some products are geared toward the detection of emergency care. The <a hrev="https://www.fallcall.com/" target="_blank">FallCall Detect app</a> for the AppleWatch can distinguish between falls with greater force that are more likely to cause injury and falls that occur from a sitting position. If a high-impact call is detected, FallCall’s medical monitoring service is automatically contacted and will send emergency medical services if needed. If a low-impact fall is detected, only a user’s pre-designated support contact is notified.</p> </div> <div class="col-md-4"> <p style="margin-top:30px;"><a href="/center" title="Visit the AHA Center for Health Innovation landing page."><img alt="AHA Center for Health Innovation logo" data-entity-="" data-entity-uuid="7ade6b12-de98-4d0b-965f-a7c99d9463c5" src="/sites/default/files/inline-images/logo-aha-innovation-center-color-sm.jpg" style="max-width: 80%;" type="file" class="align-center" /></a></p> <a href="/center/form/innovation-subscription"><img alt="" data-entity-type="" data-entity-uuid="" src="/sites/default/files/2019-04/Market_Scan_Call_Out_360x300.png" /></a></div> </div> </div> <style type="text/css"> <!--/*--><![CDATA[/* ><!--*/ <!--/*--><![CDATA[/* ><!--*/ .field_featured_image { position: absolute; overflow: hidden; clip: rect(0 0 0 0); height: 1px; width: 1px; margin: -1px; padding: 0; border: 0; } .featured-image{ position: absolute; overflow: hidden; clip: rect(0 0 0 0); height: 1px; width: 1px; margin: -1px; padding: 0; border: 0; } /*--><!]]]]><![CDATA[>*/ /*--><!]]>*/ </style></div> <div class="field_media_featured_image"><article> <div class="field_media_image"> <img src="/sites/default/files/2021-01/ms_011721_item1_BDO_620_1797740.jpg" width="620" height="381" alt="A New Era Begins in Connected Health at Home.
