In this panel, experts will share firsthand experiences, best practices, and lessons learned from program launch to site expansion. Key topics such as scalability, staffing solutions, reimbursement models, supply chain management, patient and caregiver experience, technology integration, pharmacy services, and regulatory considerations will be covered. Participants will gain invaluable insights into the scaling of existing programs and discover how hospital-at-home program directors are successfully expanding their reach and positively impacting patient care.
Hospital at Home and the Continuum of Home-Based Care
Hospital at home should not exist in silo but rather within a continuum of home-based care where patients can seamlessly transition from one phase of care to the next without needing to leave the homes. This continuum includes various forms of care such as acute care, post-acute care, palliative care at home, primary/chronic care at home, and even episodic care like emergency room or urgent care services provided in the home. This session will delve into these topics and more, highlighting the importance of a comprehensive approach to home-based care.
