|Title:||Planning and clinical role of acute medical home care services for COVID‐19: consensus position statement by the Hospital‐in‐the‐Home Society Australasia.|
|Institutional Author:||Hospital‐in‐the‐Home Society Australasia|
|Publication Title:||Internal Medicine Journal|
|Abstract:||During a pandemic when hospitals are stretched and patients need isolation, the role of hospital-in-the-home (HITH) providing acute medical care at home has never been more relevant. We aimed to define and address the challenges to acute home care services posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Planning for service operation involves staffing, equipment availability and cleaning, upskilling in telehealth and communication. Planning for clinical care involves maximising cohorts of patients without COVID-19 and new clinical pathways for patients with COVID-19. The risk of SARS-CoV-2 transmission, specific COVID-19 clinical pathways and the well-being of patients and staff should be addressed in advance.|
