Presbyterian's Hospital-at-Home program featured

Presbyterian was one of the earliest adopters of Hospital-at-Home. In this Q&A in Becker’s Hospital Review, medical director Dr. Elizabeth De Pirro shares lessons learned since 2008.

Presbyterian saw that this was an innovative and successful program for acutely ill patients who could be treated and recover in the comfort of their own homes, with pets and family nearby for support, she explains. Caring for these more stable patients in the home setting would also open additional inpatient beds for the more seriously ill.

“Our results show higher patient satisfaction, lower rate of falls, reduced mortality and 42 percent lower costs than what we would expect for hospitalized patients with similar conditions,” De Pirro says.
