5 health systems launching hospital-at-home programs

Here are five health systems that launched "hospital-at-home" programs since July 26. 

  1. Fort Myers, Fla.-based Lee Health partnered with telehealth and remote patient monitoring Health Recovery Solutions to create a virtual health program for patients with congestive heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, hypertension and post cardio-thoracic surgery patients. The aim of the program is to decrease hospital readmissions and reduce unnecessary emergency room visits.

  2. Kansas City, Mo.-based Saint Luke's Health System partnered with Medically Home to create a hospital-at-home program that provides high-acuity care at home for patients. The program, dubbed Hospital In Your Home, provides care at-home to a wide range of conditions that would traditionally require inpatient hospitalization.

  3. Mannington Township, N.J.-based Salem Medical Center partnered with in-home medical care provider Sena Health to launch an acute in-home care program. The program, dubbed Salem Acute Care at Home, will allow patients to remain at home while receiving hospital-level care from physicians and nurses.

  4. Yale New Haven (Conn.) Health is planning to launch a home infusion program Sept. 9. As part of the program, patients will receive infusion treatments at home for conditions that typically used to require a visit to a hospital or infusion clinic.

  5. Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo Clinic is partnering with health tech company WizeCare to develop an at-home cardiac rehabilitation program. The program will guide patients in their daily exercise routines and monitor heart rate, cardiopulmonary fitness levels and oxygen consumption. The aim is to identify any life-threatening cardiac events early and improve adherence to the rehab program.
