Value Initiative: How the Home Hospital Model Improves Value during COVID-19 and Beyond

The Hospital at Home model is a promising approach to improve value by making acute hospital-level care available to patients in their homes, rather than in a hospital setting. In this webinar from AHA’s The Value Initiative, presenters from Brigham and Women’s Hospital and University of Utah Health will share the evidence of hospital at home’s effectiveness, and how their hospitals have implemented it before and during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Presenters:

  • David Levine, M.D., MPH, MA, Assistant Professor of Medicine, Brigham and Women's Hospital
  • Karen Titchener, MSN, Director, Strategic Development, Huntsman at Home; Adjunct Assistant Professor College of Nursing, Huntsman Cancer Institute, University of Utah Health
