Improving Hospital In The Home

Hospital in the Home Improvement Group

Our exclusive Hospital in the Home reports provide a detailed analysis of your facilities service, crucially benchmarking against your peers across Australia and New Zealand.

The 2020 HITH Improvement Group will continue the successful progress made in previous years by:

  1. Collecting and benchmarking a consistent and complete HITH data set
  2. Developing specific HITH benchmarking reports that focus on quality, safe and efficient patient care
  3. Measuring and benchmarking performance across the total HITH patient journey including ED, Inpatient and Outpatient Care
  4. Analysing the reports to identify unique insights for your organisation
  5. Connecting with highly regarded HITH leaders on key topics to improve your HITH
  6. Sharing and collaborating best practice models of care from your organisation


The Health Roundtable has developed detailed benchmarking reports to assist services to highlight key insights and review the success and opportunities in their HITH referrals against peers.

HITH Benchmarking Reports
Specifically the suite of benchmarking reports includes the following HITH specific reports produced annually:

  1. % of all HITH Episodes
  2. % of all HITH Bed Days
  3. ALoS for all HITH Episodes
  4. % of Long Stay Outliers
  5. Breakdown of HITH Admissions & Discharges by Day of Week
  6. HITH Readmission Rates
  7. HITH Aged Group Breakdown
  8. HITH Patient Complexity and Breakdown
  9. Departments referring to HITH
  10. All of the above metrics broken down into Surgery and Medicine partitions as well as Cellulitis, Antibiotics, Anticoagulation, Post-Surgical Care and Wound Care.


The current traditional healthcare model is unsustainable. Hospital in the Home services provide an alternative to traditional hospital-based care, delivering patient centred care where patients report higher satisfaction, superior clinical outcomes and less complications of care.

Delivering Acute Care in the home offers many advantages to your service by:

  1. Improving patient centred care, outcomes and experience
  2. Reducing your ALoS, RSI, Readmission and HAC rates
  3. Increasing your hospitals bed capacity
  4. Improving patient flow through your ED and wards
  5. Reducing your direct costs.


Our members share successful innovations through our online innovation library.

For existing HITH services benchmark your facility with the exemplars.

For new HITH services, learn and adapt existing models of care and develop peer networks that will help you implement and grow HITH services in your facility.

Join this growing group and share your wisdom as well as gaining new knowledge from your peers.
