Hospital in the Home: An Innovative Partnership Model

This project developed a new model of care for its Hospital in the Home (HITH) program, by integrating the services delivered by ambulatory care and community health nursing teams.


  • Provides patients with high quality, safe care in their home or close to their home.
  • Allows patients to remain close to their family and carers, improving their level of care and satisfaction.
  • Improves recovery time, hospital discharge times and resumption of normal activities.
  • Reduces hospital admissions and associated complications such as hospital-acquired infections, falls and delirium.
  • Reduces costs associated with caring for patients in the hospital, as it is more affordable to care for them in the community.
  • Improves availability for hospital beds, with increased capacity for other Ambulatory Care services such as medical, surgical and outpatient clinics.
  • Provides junior doctors and medical students with an opportunity to gain experience working in the community setting, in collaboration with community health services.
  • Ensures that post-discharge continuity of care is provided to patients by clinicians across many specialties.
