NCT ID: NCT03178513 Recruiting - Clinical trials for A Patient Discharged From an Acute-care Hospital Who Had an Acute Illness

Post-Acute Physician Home Visit Program

Start date: June 6, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

New or worsening symptoms following discharge from the hospital likely leads to unplanned readmission. These rates are higher than desired and costly to patients, payers, and providers. Many interventions have unsuccessfully attempted to reduce readmissions, but few have provided in-home personnel to patients transitioning from acute care back to ambulatory care. Still fewer have involved a physician in the home. We therefore will test the effect of a physician home visit to a patient's home who was discharged in the last 4 days.
