Following the expansion of several large healthcare organizations in Advanced Home Care, Philadelphia-based Sena Health will help provide acute Salem Home Care for patients at New Jersey-based Salem Medical Center.

The home hospital startup has the capacity to provide up to 23 home hospital services for medical conditions that would typically require hospital stays, along with care coordinators available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year .

According to the announcement, the program combines expert care and cutting-edge technology to provide home care for patients.

The first patient treated under the program was seen in July.

“We cared for a patient with congestive heart failure in the comfort of her home, where she would otherwise have been admitted to the hospital,” said Dr. Wamiq Sultan, Chief Medical Officer of Salem Medical Center.

To enroll, patients must have been seen in an emergency department and assessed. If they meet certain criteria to be cared for safely at home, they will receive two in-person nursing visits per day. They can get in touch with a dedicated clinical team, just as they would in a hospital.

Dr John Frownfelter, Jvion’s chief medical officer, said Health Informatics News in December, “If we put patients first, the framework becomes moot.”
