Home Health is growing area of care because patients and families would prefer to be cared for at home. Patients who are not critically ill can often be cared for more effectively within their own homes. With the availability of the internet, point of care blood tests, and miniaturized medical instruments such as pocket ultrasound machines, many of the services that previously could only be delivered in a hospital can be delivered at home. This is an exciting field that is rapidly growing and innovating. Therefore many of these playbooks will be quickly changing and improving as new tools become available and as healthcare providers become more proficient in managing patients in their homes.
