This session was originally presented at NHPCO’s 2014 Virtual Conference ‘Hot Topics in Palliative Care’. "At Home Support", a program developed by Hospice of Michigan,  is an advanced illness coordinated care solution focused on providing services to the 5 percent of Medicare patients in an ACO or Medicare Advantage network that account for 50 percent of the cost.  These patients typically have Stage IV chronic illness with comorbidities and an expected median life span of 24 months. Developed through 12 years of evidenced-base outcomes research, "At Home Support" improves quality outcomes and patient experiences, while supporting stressed family members. In addition, it’s saving saving 30 percent net total health care costs for this 5 percent cohort. These savings are primarily produced from substantial decreases in unnecessary ER utilization, hospitalization and re-hospitalization.


  • Describe "At Home Support" and its program components
  • Understand program outcomes and metrics
  • Consider the applicability of this model in their local marketplace
