Achieving Regulatory and Payment Certainty for Hospital at Home (PANEL) : In December of 2022, Congress extended the hospital-at-home waiver for two years, unlocking regulatory and reimbursement certainty at the federal level. However, what’s still left on the table is finding a long-term solution and state-level regulatory barriers. We are at a pivotal time, with an opportunity to help Congress and the Administration work through these issues to expand acute home-based care beyond the pandemic experience.
Track B: Optimizing Technology and Workflows to Protect Patient Safety and Improve Staff Experiences, Hospital-at-Home programs offer the potential to deliver improved outcomes for patients and more satisfying care delivery experiences for providers. But these results don't just happen. Program design, technology configuration, and workflow creation are essential components to a thriving and scalable program. This session will discuss the approach NYU Langone took for optimizing technology and workflows for their home hospital program. The presenters will discuss the work technical and clinical teams accomplished to define high priority workflows and how they executed a 6-week Epic integration with provider experiences as top priority. They’ll also discuss how to configure technology to ensure patient safety, identify deterioration early, and escalate care.
