A podcast on the Hospital-at-Home, or Virtual Hospital Model, is always of interest at Medically Home. This podcast was produced by Tradeoffs and posted on May 28, 2020. Tradeoffs is a new podcast exploring the confusing, costly, and counter intuitive health care system. In this episode, Executive Producer & Co-Host Dan Gorenstein discusses Medically Home’s virtual hospital model and other hospital-at-home programs with Dr. Bruce Leff, a pioneer in the hospital-at-home movement, and Medically Home’s Co-Founder Raphael Rakowski among others. Experts think that the home is a safer, better, and cheaper place to treat patients for certain conditions that typically require hospitalization. Even still, hospital-at-home programs have been slow to grow in the U.S. with less than 1% of U.S. hospitals enacting hospital-at-home programs and even those are very small. With the pandemic putting new pressure on the capacity and finances of hospitals, this decades-old model is receiving a surge in new interest. Listen Now to a Podcast on the Hospital-at-Home.
