Building the Business Case for Acute Care at Home Programs
The COVID-19 pandemic may have been a driving force behind initial adoption of acute hospital-at-home models, but they provide an innovative approach to solve for current and future financial, clinical, operational, and market challenges. A University of Colorado Denver and Guidehouse survey found hospitals are growing their business lines to provide approximately 20% more services outside of the hospital and/or in the home. As hospitals reimagine inpatient care delivery with acute care at home, they can realize meaningful benefits such as increased capacity, improved patient experiences, market differentiation, and more. In this workshop, learn how to define your value proposition and pinpoint opportunity areas to make the business case for a hospital-at-home model.
