Home Hospital: Outlook and Opportunity: While home hospital is not a new concept, home-hospital programs have gained prominence as a substitute to traditional hospitalization in recent years, especially with the momentum gained during the pandemic. This forward-looking keynote session will explore the big-picture view of the current state of home hospital and where experts believe the care-delivery model is going. What are the opportunities to better serve an aging population and meet patients’ preferences? This presentation will delve into the people, technology, medicine, patients, and caregivers of home hospital’s next chapter.
Metrics and Measurement in Hospital at Home: As healthcare systems look to evaluate their home hospital program, establishing standardized metrics and measurement plays an important role. In addition to process and outcome metrics, programs should establish focus measurement on equity and the experience of patients and caregivers. Are there standard measurements that have been established industry wide? And what are the reporting requirements for CMS? This session will explore best practices for measurement and reporting.
