2023 Together - PH353 - There’s No Place Like Home: Serving Acute Care Patients Where They Belong - On Demand
While the idea of a hospital at home isn’t new, the pandemic temporarily removed one of the key barriers to this innovation: reimbursement. Through the Acute Hospital Care at Home Waiver, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) allowed programs to be approved and reimbursed as a traditional acute care inpatient stay. In this session, you’ll hear from two organizations on the success of their efforts over the last few years.
- Healthcare Quality Professionals
- Pharmacy Technicians
- Other Healthcare Professionals
Discuss CMS home hospital requirements and reimbursement.
Describe successful strategies to implement a home hospital model, including performance metrics to measure outcomes.
