Dear WHAHC Community,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the fourth edition of the World Hospital at Home Congress WHAHC 2025, which will take place on 27 – 29 March 2025 in the charming city of Vienna, Austria. As we gear up for the upcoming congress, we extend a warm invitation to healthcare practitioners, academics, policymakers, and innovators from around the globe to contribute to an agenda that promises to be more enlightening and impactful than ever.

Since we embarked on this journey together in 2019, WHAHC has stood at the forefront of advocating for the Hospital at Home model, a revolutionary approach that has now become a beacon of hope and a testament to what the future of healthcare can look like. Over these years, Hospital at Home has evolved dramatically, with numerous countries adopting and adapting its principles to meet the acute needs of patients in the comfort of their own homes. The development of new models and the accumulation of scientific evidence have continually highlighted the effectiveness, safety, and patient satisfaction associated with this mode of care.

The upcoming congress in 2025 seeks to further this momentum by sharing the latest innovations, research findings, and real-world implementations that have the potential to reshape healthcare landscapes across the world.

We invite you to mark your calendars and start prepping your abstracts and session proposals, sharing your experiences, academic work, and visionary insights with the WHAH Community. Whether you have been involved in pioneering Hospital at Home programs, conducting research on its outcomes, or developing technologies and methodologies to support Hospital at Home, your contributions are invaluable.

This congress is not just a platform for learning but an opportunity to collaborate with like-minded professionals who are equally passionate about making high-level hospital care accessible, efficient, and patient-centered. By bringing together diverse perspectives and expertise, we aim to foster a global dialogue that will spearhead further advancements in the Hospital at Home model.

Let’s come together to push the boundaries of healthcare, ensuring that every patient has the chance to receive the highest standard of care right where they feel most comfortable—at home.

On Behalf of the Scientific Committee,

Dr Itamar Offer

Founder and Co-Chair of WHAHC
