Debate – Research Method – Do we need more RCT?

Hospital at Home has been the subject of many randomized controlled trials, meta-analyses, and systematic reviews that have generally shown positive outcomes for the model.  However, this evidence base hasn't translated into dissemination and scaling of HaH.  Are additional RCTs needed? If so, why? Should we be focusing on other approaches such as implementation science to push the field forward?

Technology

Progress in computing and information technology is affecting home hospitalization. The implementation of technologies into HaH raises a number of challenges, including active and passive monitoring, the format and structure of the hospitalization process and Patient-Doctor-Nurse engagement. Continuity of care is one of the major challenges waiting to be solved. We will also discuss what should we expect in the near future and what will happen only after 2030.
