Leveraging our longstanding Remote Patient Monitoring program and several successful virtual care models, IU Health has built a robust Hospital at Home program that has served nearly 2,000 patients since the start of Covid-19. This program is being expanded to realize significant cost savings opportunities, scarce clinical resource utilization and length of stay improvement. In our hospice service, IU Health has achieved top quartile hospital mortality performance by establishing a robust, patient and family centered hospice service. All of the success realized from these programs has been a function of high performing teams working together and modeling IU Health’s core values of Team, Excellence, Purpose, and Compassion.
