Summary

In July 1998, the Commonwealth Department of Health and Family Services commissioned the Centre for Health Economics Research and Evaluation (CHERE) to identify and document Hospital in the Home care models nationally and internationally. The purpose of this consultancy was to examine the appropriateness of this form of care for acutely ill patients and to make recommendations about how to increase the utilisation and cost effectiveness of services. In this report, the outcomes of the consultancy are presented. Chapter One provides an overview of the report and a definition of HITH. For the purposes of this project, care provided to post-surgical, medical and rehabilitation patients was included in the definition of HITH thus excluding palliative care, obstetrics and psychiatric patients. In Chapter Two, the Australian and international literature on the clinical and cost-effectiveness of HITH is reviewed. Chapter Three consists of the results of two surveys about HITH and information gathered from consultations with stakeholders. In Chapter Four the issues and implications arising from this information are discussed. Chapter Five introduces six potential models of HITH care. These models are evaluated using a set of economic and non-economic criteria. The paper concludes with a set of recommendations on models of care.four-pole
