Samuel is just one of several healthcare CEOs and executives interviewed about their federally sanctioned hospital-at-home programs in a new article by Texas CEO Magazine.

The programs are modeled after the federal Acute Hospital Care at Home program, which launched at the height of the pandemic to enable hospitals to provide hospital-like care in patients’ own homes. The initiative allows sanctioned programs to do things like waive 24-hour nursing care. 

Founded in 2018 with a goal to offer “better care” at “lower costs,” Plano-based Resilient Healthcare aims to expand hospital care to the community “beyond the hospital walls,” by specializing in delivering high-acuity care to patients with serious illnesses in their homes.

But as Texas CEO notes, the federal program that launched during the pandemic is currently only slated to run through 2024. 

“We’re hoping the program becomes permanent, but it’s hard to read the tea leaves,” Cameron Duncan, VP of advocacy and public policy for the Texas Hospital Association, told Texas CEO. “However, if you read the research, it spells out a pretty convincing business case for continuing the program.”
