Path to Home Overview

Path to Home is a new care model that will help prepare patients and families with their transition from hospital to a post acute care setting. It is an integral access and flow initiative designed to address acute care service delivery and proactive discharge planning seven days a week.

Path to Home focuses on the quality of our patients' experiences by formalizing admission, discharge pre-planning and day of discharge activities. The goal is to create more standardized and consistent communication with all team members and their patients.

Path to Home involves developing a new rhythm within our patient care environment to proactively plan and co-ordinate the plan of care. The process relies on an integrated team-based approach to more consistently pre-plan and accomplish care tasks that are central to almost all areas of patient care.
