Activity Overview 

Hospital at Home programs allow patients who need acute care to receive their treatment in the comfort of their homes rather than in a hospital. Setup of these programs is complex and pharmacies are an integral part of these programs. This webinar will describe high level informatics considerations in the implementation of a Hospital at Home program. 

The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education with Commendation.

This activity was planned to meet the educational needs of pharmacy leadership, pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and informaticists in health systems looking to utilize their EHR for a Hospital at Home program. 

After completing this activity, the learner should be able to…

  • Identify potential challenges with medication use process within the hospital at home model.
  • Describe tools that can facilitate order entry for hospital at home providers.
  • List opportunities for pharmacy engagement in hospital at home teams.
