Evidence for change

Public Health Devon has recently (November 2013) published a review of all evidence of care closer to home.

Care Closer to Home Rapid Evidence Review (pdf)

When compared with in-patient care, care delivered at home:

  1. is as effective
  2. has similar or reduced mortality
  3. has similar levels of readmissions
  4. has fewer people ending up in residential care
  5. has increased patient satisfaction
