Methodology

"There appears to be clear evidence that home healthcare can achieve outcomes comparable to acute care delivered in a hospital environment. There also appears to be clear evidence that home healthcare generally gives rise to greater patient satisfaction."

Healthcare at Home commissioned Dr Foster Intelligence to provide independent analytical support to identify the potential savings available to the NHS if it were to more widely adopt home-based care.

Using a private care provider model currently in use in NHS Birmingham East and North (NHS BEN), each area of care uses assumptions from Healthcare at Home Ltd based on its current service provision and partnership with NHS BEN. For three of the areas, an extended case has been provided that extends the net savings analysis to further applicable services.
