Hospital-Level Care at Home for Acutely Ill Adults

  

Hospitals are standard of care for acute illness, but hospitals can be unsafe, uncomfortable, and expensive. Providing substitutive hospital-level care in a patient’s home potentially reduces cost while maintaining or improving quality, safety, and patient experience.

A “home hospital” is home-based provision of acute services usually associated with the traditional inpatient hospital setting.

We will discuss the innerworkings, reasoning behind, and pitfalls of home hospitalization.

  • We will describe prior home hospital efforts
  • We will describe and defend the home hospital model
  • We will discuss challenges and future directions for intensive home-based care.\
