Innovations: Bringing Hospital-Level Care Home

08/06/2016 | Modern Healthcare
Members of Marshfield Clinic’s Security Health Plan will be able to enroll in a pilot program starting September 1 to receive hospital-level care at home. About 350 consumers will be able to sign up at the program’s start for treatment of six conditions: chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism, congestive heart failure, pneumonia, urinary tract infection and cellulitis. The program is expected to lower costs by delivering care at home.
