The hospital-at-home initiatives launched by health systems to date often have evolved organically out of need, commonly citing capacity problems. The value proposition of a hospital-at-home may simply not be there for a health system that isn’t facing a severe bed shortage. Capitalizing on the potential value from a hospital-at-home also hinges on having a large volume of patients – specifically patients with the types of conditions that are taking up hospital beds – who can be transitioned to a home setting. For some health systems, this may only represent a small fraction of the patient population, as patients need to be sick enough to require inpatient-level services but stable enough to be cared for in their home. Every health system’s patient population will be different, but common conditions treated via hospital-at-home initiatives include pneumonia, congestive heart failure, COPD, cellulitis, and COVID.
