Texas’ teaching hospitals support federal legislation to continue the Hospital at Home program. Currently authorized as a COVID-19 public health emergency waiver, Hospital at Home allows hospitals to deliver inpatient-level care in patients’ homes. Two THOT members — University Health and Parkland Health — are among the 200 hospitals nationwide that operate these innovative, patient-centered programs, and Harris Health is preparing to operate a program.

THOT supports filed legislation, the Hospital Inpatient Services Modernization Act, to continue the program for two years beyond expiration of the PHE.
