Home Hospital: Bringing Acute Inpatient Care Home
Speaker: Dr. David Levine, MD, MA, Brigham & Women's Hospital
Dr. David Levine, MD, MA from Brigham & Women’s Hospital leads an in-depth discussion on the concept of “home hospital.” Dr. Levine and his associates conducted a pilot study that admitted emergency patients to a home-based acute care program rather than an inpatient setting. He also shares the realized benefits of the program for both patients and the healthcare system.
Dr. Levine shares:
- An at-a-glance overview of the "hospital-at-home" program
- Insight into how the "hospital-at-home" care team was assembled
- An understanding of how patients and caregivers communicated
- An overview of the patient outcomes and revenue impact of the study
