Medically Home Hospital at Home

Medically Home Hospital-at-Home: Instead of checking into an expensive hospital stay, this aptly-named company proposes a hardware/service hospital-at-home alternative that allows you to more inexpensively and more comfortably recover at home. You get a special hot line phone to directly connect you to the appropriate medical specialists, an iPad for video conferencing and virtual exams, biometric sensors to monitor your vitals, an actual hospital bed if needed, up to 18 medical services including x-rays, IV drips and physical therapy, and four actual doctor or nurse visits a day, just like in a hospital. Hospital-at-home is covered by a growing number of private insurance plans and by Medicare Advantage, and the company claims you can save 30 percent or more over the costs of a comparable hospital stay.
