Mount Sinai Implementation Manual Now Available
Mount Sinai Hospitalization at Home and Rehabilitation at Home is offering its Implementation Manual through the HaH Users Group to hospitals and health systems interested in launching or building their HaH offerings.
Developed from Mount Sinai’s experience creating the Mobile Acute Care Team model with support from CMMI, the manual offers a brief history of the hospital at home model and describes Sinai’s experience creating a hospital at home platform that has been adapted to include rehab and observation unit patients. It also provides guidance on staffing, setting up the EMR, contracting, protocols, screening, referrals and intake. The nuts and bolts of Hospitalization at Home and Rehabilitation at Home visits are reviewed as well.
The manual should serve as an invaluable resource for hospitals looking to set up a new program and participate in the HaH CMS waiver program, as it covers the whole range of practical and operational considerations around setting up a high quality hospital at home program.
Web site of Hospital at Home at Johns Hopkins University
Includes description of the Hopkins model, as well as several helpful tools including a readiness assessment, business model spreadsheet, and the ability to contact Hopkins HaH leadership for a whole suite of tools and training.
