GENERAL SESSION :
Health Equity and Hospital at Home: Hospital at home or home-based acute care is in the position to bridge the gap of health equity. The innovative care-delivery model is helping to better assess patients’ social determinants of health through access to patients’ home environments. The session will discuss some of these important benefits and explore existing data on hospital at home and health equity. The panelists will also explore aspects that providers should consider related to social and safety screenings; potential impacts on caregiver burden; language, social and culture care congruencies; and the continuum of post-acute care. Join this panel session to explore these important topics and more.
