If you or a loved one are being considered for admission to the hospital, your provider may recommend our Hospital Care at Home program. ChristianaCare’s Hospital Care at Home program enables patients to receive 24/7 hospital-level care from the comfort of their homes rather than in a hospital.
Our team of experts will treat and monitor your health with the highest level of care. Even though patients are not physically within the walls of the hospital, they are constantly connected to healthcare providers. Patients connect with their care team through a combination of in-person and virtual visits and monitoring through our telehealth platform.
ChristianaCare Hospital Care at Home offers the highest level of in-home acute care in Delaware. It provides a combination of virtual and in-person care by a team of physicians, nurse practitioners, registered nurses and other providers. In-person and virtual visits from the health care team along with mobile imaging and lab services, delivery services for meals and nutrition, and pharmacy medication and management mean a patient doesn’t necessarily need to leave home to get better. Virtual technology and home health equipment are brought into the patient’s home to ensure round-the-clock monitoring and care that mirrors a traditional hospital setting.
How does this program work?
During your stay in the program, you will be provided with a tablet for video visits and a phone that connects you directly with your care team. In addition, you will also be provided with a personal emergency response bracelet, vital signs monitoring devices and a backup power supply. All technology is delivered and set up for you in your home.
The length of your stay in the Hospital Care at Home program is determined by you and your care team. Once you have reached your care goals, you will be discharged from the program. Our care team will make sure all your needs are met upon discharge. We will remove our technology (tablet, telephone, vitals sign monitoring equipment, and backup power supply). We will also follow up with you post-discharge to check on you and make sure you have everything you need to continue achieving your health and wellness goals.
