UMass Memorial Health Builds Leading Hospital at Home Program
UMass Memorial Health, is a safety-net, academic provider based in Worcester, Massachusetts.

In March 2021, the organization began planning its Hospital at Home program and enrolled its first patient only six months later.
In this case study, we examine the outcomes achieved in the first year of this new care model and the practical steps the team has taken to build one of the largest hospital-at-home programs in the country.
