The Journal of the American Geriatrics Society (JAGS) has released an online first paper, "Hospital at Home‐Plus: A Platform of Facility‐Based Care."

The paper describes the evolution of a hospital at home (HaH) program to a HaH with a 30-day posthospitalization transition period, known as HaH-Plus, and details the results of a retrospective review of cases.

The study found that "providing a broader range of facility-based care in the home has significant advantages for patients and increases the scalability of HaH. Developing a spectrum of services was possible by leveraging a robust, 24-hour HaH team."

"Community- and home-based care could become a greater part of the U.S. healthcare system if a platform of HaH services along with advances in technology and payment models were developed."
