COVID-19 Care Site-Specific Call
On November 25, CMS announced the expansion of the Hospitals Without Walls program by executing an innovative Acute Hospital Care At Home program, providing eligible hospitals with unprecedented regulatory flexibilities to treat eligible patients in their homes. This program was developed to support models of at-home hospital care throughout the country that have seen prior success in several leading hospital institutions and networks, and reported in academic journals, including a major study funded by a Healthcare Innovation Award from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI).
This stakeholder call will feature two leading organizations walking through their programs as well as a Q&A session.
