2024 Users Group Annual Meeting Down to the (Waiver) Wire: What's Next for Hospital at Home?
October 17 | 11 am - 5 pm ET | Virtual

Each year the Hospital at Home Users Group brings together clinicians and leaders to forge connections and build the field. The 2024 Users Group Virtual Annual Meeting–Down to the (Waiver) Wire: What’s Next for Hospital at Home?–continues this tradition at an uncertain moment as the future of the Acute Hospital Care at Home waiver hangs in the balance.  

Down to the (Waiver) Wire, scheduled for October 17th, is the nation’s most comprehensive digital HaH conference. Our programming includes an up-to-the-minute policy update, provocative keynotes from healthcare thought leaders Drs. Mona Siddiqui and Anupam Jena, a field literature review, debates, presentations of cutting-edge research, awards showcasing the best of the HaH community, and more.  

This year, Down to the (Waiver) Wire will feature two concurrent tracks for developing and experienced programs. Each session will be packed with practical advice for your program, followed by Q&A.  

CME is available for all attendees.

Additional details about our Annual Meeting speakers and sessions will be announced in the coming weeks – join our mailing list so you don’t miss any updates.

We are proud to partner with the American Academy of Home Care Medicine (AAHCM) to make October Hospital at Home Month! If you want to continue your digital HaH conference experience in-person, register for the AAHCM Annual Meeting in Phoenix on October 18th and 19th. More details in the “HaH at AAHCM” tab below.

A clinician may be defined to include physicians, paramedics, nurse practitioners, physician’s assistants, nurses, social workers, skilled therapists. The recipient must deliver care in a Hospital at Home Users Group member program (see website for a list of member sites).

The Hospital at Home Program of the Year Award recognizes an exceptional hospital at home program that has demonstrated innovative approaches and sustained excellence in the delivery of hospital at home care.

poster abstracts

To contribute to the Users Group Annual Meeting’s program, we invite you to submit a poster abstract in one (or more) of three categories: 

  • Research 
  • Clinical Vignette 
  • Single Practice Innovation 

Scientific abstracts should present the results of purposeful and systematic research aimed at better understanding the field of home-based medical care (e.g. epidemiological investigations). These abstracts must have replicable methods, clear analytic approaches, and data for presentation. 

Clinical abstracts should be either clinical vignettes (e.g. unusual clinical findings) or practice innovations (e.g. operational improvements). Practice innovations should provide replicable ideas for implementation at other home-based medical care practices.  

Those that submit the best abstracts in each category will be invited present their poster at our Annual Meeting and/or to make a poster available to view during the conference and on our website after the meeting.

Those who wish to submit an abstract are not required to attend the Annual Meeting. Please note, if you have already submitted a poster to the AAHCM Annual Meeting, you can resubmit it here. 

The deadline for all submissions is July 15th, 5pm EST.
