Not infrequently, as healthcare professionals, we find ourselves asking the question “did this person really need to be admitted.” Often, we are finding the answer to be “no”. To explore other options when caring for patients, especially our older, more frail adults, we present an alternative model of care: home-based acute care.  Learning Objectives: (1) identify components of value-based care models and understand how these models lead to improved quality of care and better concordance with goals of care for older adults; (2) describe home-based acute care models, where they are applicable and how they may benefit older adults’ healthcare needs; and (3) describe practical approaches to implementation of home-based acute care models.
