AMC Health’s Hospital at home program enables hospitals and health systems to provide high-quality, hospital-level care to patients while in the safety and comfort of their homes.
With healthcare increasingly expanding beyond hospital walls, AMC Health’s Hospital at Home program focuses on improving outcomes and patient satisfaction, as well as making care more affordable through remote patient monitoring and virtual care.
The program was created through a Medicare waiver, which permits hospitals to provide acute care at home to Medicare patients. Patients are selected based on factors that include diagnoses that often result in frequent and costly readmissions to hospitals: uncomplicated Congestive Heart Failure (CHF), pneumonia, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and cellulitis.
Advanced Machine-learning capabilities alert clinicians to opportunities that optimize treatment, predict decompensation, better engage patients, and ultimately identify and prevent serious medical events before they occur.
