The Hospital at Home Users Group, in partnership with the American Academy of Home Care Medicine, is pleased to present our latest webinar for hospital and system leaders interested in learning about the opportunities and challenges associated with providing acute care in the home.

Inclement weather, power outages, or an unexpected event can create significant disruptions in Hospital at Home operations. In the case of an emergency, the decentralized nature of care delivery in the Hospital at Home model can cause problems. It is crucial for programs to be prepared, to have plans in place to ensure the safety of patients and healthcare personnel.

In this webinar, speakers from three Hospital at Home programs share their experiences operating in different kinds of severe weather conditions and unforeseen events and discuss the strategies, plans, and communications employed in an emergency. Speakers discuss emergency preparedness policies; the importance of adaptability; safety, supplies and service provision; and gaining staff buy-in. Speakers also explore the impact state and local government policies have on developing emergency preparedness plans.
