Annual Meeting

The Nation’s Largest Gathering of Hospital at Home Programs and Experts

The last years have been a period of exciting, even transformational growth for hospital at home programs across the country. Spurred by the CMS Acute Hospital Care at Home waiver, concerns about hospital patient safety during the COVID pandemic, and media coverage of the model’s potential, health systems and hospitals have taken notice. They are developing programs in urban, suburban, and rural settings and exploring how acute care for a wide range of patients and diagnoses can be delivered safely and effectively at home.

During this period, the Hospital at Home Users Group™, with ongoing support from The John A. Hartford Foundation, has grown dramatically.  With more than 350 full and affiliate members, the Hospital at Home Users Group is the nation’s largest community of hospital at home programs throughout the United States, Canada, and beyond. We have expanded our technical assistance, launched a webinar series, and have created a vibrant learning community for new and existing programs.

The next 2022 Annual Meeting is scheduled for October 27, 2022, and will take place virtually and once again will be a pre-conference to the American Academy for Home Care Medicine (AAHCM)’s Annual Meeting (October 28 – October 29). As the AAHCM Annual Meeting is an in-person convening in Orlando, Florida, we encourage all who can to join the AAHCM conference in-person, while taking part in the Hospital at Home Users Group meeting online.

The 4th Hospital at Home Users Group Annual Meeting–Agile and Ready–takes place at a moment of dynamic growth for Hospital at Home. At the same time, the federal Acute Care at Home waiver that has provided a straightforward payment mechanism for these programs faces an uncertain future. Agile and Ready will update program leaders and clinicians on state-of-the-art practice innovations, breaking policy news, and the latest about what is on offer through the Hospital at Home Users Group. Please note: This is a virtual-only conference.

The Users Group Annual Meeting includes morning and afternoon sessions, featuring keynote and panel presentations from national experts and thought leaders. The meeting includes debates on important Hospital at Home issues, presentations from site leaders on research and clinical innovations, and award recognition of the best of the Hospital at Home movement.

Each health system/hospital is invited to bring two patients or caregivers that they serve through their hospital at home program to the Annual Meeting for free. If you are interested, please contact us and we can provide instructions to register your patients/caregivers for free. 

Detailed instructions for registration can be found here.
