The “Hospital at Home" program provides inpatient medical treatment (such as intravenous medications, daily laboratory monitoring, and basic imaging) to patients in their home under close clinician supervision. The authors found that integration of a pharmacist into the program enabled detection and resolution of medication discrepancies, which contributed to cost savings from medication dispensing and avoided early hospital discharge.
