Description

This session will provide an in-depth discussion on the concept of “home hospital" and a pilot study that was conducted looking at admitting emergency patients to a home-based acute care program rather than an inpatient setting. This session will share some of the benefits discovered for both patients and the healthcare system.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Identify patients who would benefit from a home hospital program
  • Create a team of clinicians and care givers who can execute a home hospital program
