The Payer’s Perspective: A Broader Definition of Value (PANEL) : While healthcare challenges in the first wave of COVID-19 sparked interest, the value proposition of in-home hospitalization alternatives is fueling the model's momentum as we move out of the public health emergency. Although, early in the pandemic, large academic medical centers and health systems adopted the shift through the government's Acute Hospital Care at Home waiver, payers are increasingly leaning into strategies that include high acuity healthcare in the home. However, to create sustainable reimbursement mechanisms, we first need a better definition of the value provided by this model of care. This panel presentation will explore the considerations from the perspective of a payer including how to clinical comfortability (quality and safety), member experience of care, and figuring out mundane logistics like billing procedures.
