A healthcare delivery system which partially substitutes for inpatient hospital care – hospital at home – is
becoming widespread worldwide, but has only recently gained a foothold in the United States. An
overview of this system is presented along with results of outcomes research associated with it. The
technologies driving this system are discussed, and a rationale for its more widespread adoption in the
U.S. is made.
