In addition to being able to remain in their home and near family and friends, patients who have experienced hospital care at home benefit from decreased infection rates, increased mobility and a 50% less readmission rate, all leading to better outcomes for the patient and overall increased patient satisfaction.
How does the program work?
Patient care teams identify patients who meet the clinical criteria for inpatient hospital care at home and who are eligible to participate. If the patient agrees to participate in the program, instead of being admitted as an inpatient into the hospital, the patient care team begins evaluation and process to set up the patient’s home:
- Patient care team conducts a home evaluation based on several factors including the patient diagnosis and needed treatment, available support system at home, proximity to the hospital and insurance coverage.
- Upon completing a home evaluation, the team sets up a home technology kit to monitor the patient’s vitals including blood pressure, heart rate, oxygen levels, and temperature, as needed.
- The information is automatically transmitted to the 24/7 Patient Care Hub with real-time patient monitoring, including on-demand and immediate audio and visual connections.
- Patient receives in-home care throughout the day as needed for general monitoring or any necessary testing, imaging or therapies as required.
Patients are not required to have in-home caregivers for this program.
