Hospital at Home: A Leading Care Model for the Future?

July 28, 2021

Hospital at Home is an innovative patient care model that picked up traction during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is growing in the U.S. and internationally, and is part of the expanding movement to deliver health care in people’s homes. While early success with the model shows feasibility, improved outcomes and lower costs for certain patients with select conditions and building consensus across providers, payers and policymakers is key for ensuring long-term success for this emerging model. Join NCQA and Hospital at Home experts for a 90-minute roundtable discussion of early successes and emerging policies and infrastructure considerations. Faculty include policymakers, private industry representatives and researchers.
