What if instead of going to the hospital when we became sick, the hospital came to us? That’s the topic of today’s Business Group on Health podcast conversation with Dr. David Levine, whose work and research concentrates on advanced home-based care for acutely ill people. Dubbed “home hospital,” this care model gained momentum during the pandemic as COVID-19 admissions surged, while others feared infection and avoided hospitals. We discuss the home hospital movement – how and why acute care is being provided to some patients in their own homes; what we know about the impact on patient experience, clinical outcomes and cost of care; and why interest in is growing in the U.S.
