Hospital at home: IPPS member organizations blaze a new trail

Hospital at home programs that enable patients to receive acute care at home have proven effective in improving outcomes while cutting costs. Prior to the pandemic, widespread adoption of the model in the U.S. was hampered by a variety of factors including the reluctance of payers to reimburse physicians for services in home settings. However, the acceleration of digital health in 2020-21 has uniquely paved the way for these initiatives to become more broadly accepted. Learn how our IPPS member organizations such as Kaiser Permanente, Marshfield Clinic, Henry Ford Health System and many others are leading the transformation of health care delivery in the home setting.

Speakers' slides


  • Michael Suk, MD, AMA Board of Trustees
  • Stephen Parodi, MD
  • Bruce Muma, MD
  • Travis Messina
