Webinar: Reimagine Patient Care and Safety, Consider a Hospital At Home
Hosted by PSQH
There is no place like healing at home. Hospital at Home (HaH) programs have been successfully implemented across the globe in countries like Australia, New Zealand and Spain, but have yet to achieve critical mass in North America. Benefits of HaH programs, when implemented well, can result in more patient-centered care and lower rates of hospital-based complications, including infections. The programs can also reduce pressures on hospital beds and emergency departments.
Dr. Spina and the Island Health team launched the program at Victoria General Hospital and Royal Jubilee Hospital in British Columbia, enabling patients to receive safe and effective care virtually and in their homes from a multidisciplinary team of providers. The successful program was guided by patient oriented research that included a robust public engagement process and an investment in specific tools, technologies, and resources that patients, families sand clinicians insisted were needed to make the program successful and sustainable.
