KGH is implementing a Hospital at Home program along with other Health Authorities in the province, supported by the Ministry of Health. Hospital at Home is a program that provides acute care services in patients’ homes. Hospital at Home is comprised of an inter-professional care team including nurses, hospitalist physicians, pharmacists, and Allied Health professionals. KGH Hospital at Home will have a census of 18 medical patients. There are many benefits of Hospital at Home, including improved patient experience and satisfaction.

Patient engagement is a very important part of developing our Hospital at Home program. We would like to engage with patient partners on several aspects that will affect patient care, including the development of our Medication Administration Record for self-administration of medications, scheduling home and virtual care visits, and clinical workflows from the patient perspective.

This is an exciting opportunity for partnership to be involved in the development of a novel program with a strong patient and family centered care focus.

Being involved in the Patient Voices Network has broadened my understanding of the system and helped me empathize with health care challenges and limitations. What matters to me is to walk away feeling that my experience matters, that I matter!
