About the Users Group

A Dynamic Collaborative

Hospitalization can be hazardous for some patients, and particularly older patients with multiple chronic conditions. Hospital at Home makes acute hospital-level care available to older adults in their homes and apartments, rather than in a traditional hospital setting. In North America, with the support of private foundations and health care systems, Hospital at Home programs, configured in a variety of ways, have been shown to improve care, increase patient and caregiver satisfaction, and reduce costs.

Interest in Hospital at Home has expanded recently due to the Acute Hospital Care at Home waiver, which went into effect in 2020. To date, hundreds of hospitals and health systems have received a waiver, with programs cropping up in states around the country.

Seeking to further the field, the Hospital at Home Users Group™ is a dynamic collaborative of Hospital at Home programs around the United States and Canada. We share resources and best practices, work together to expand the reach of our programs, and develop the program and policy standards to inform regulatory and reimbursement policies necessary to spread this hopeful model broadly throughout North America.
