Ariadne Labs, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health
Nov 16, 2020

Ariadne Labs is seeking proposals from rural hospitals to launch and evaluate a home-based acute care intervention, called Rural Home Hospital (RHH), which is an adaptation of the Home Hospital Model for rural communities. The trial is designed to assess whether home hospitalized patients receive high-quality care that costs less as compared to traditional hospital care.

Each rural site will enroll 25 acutely ill patients.

According to the request for proposals:

"Study Sites will provide the time and expertise of senior staff to engage with the Ariadne Labs team to tailor, launch, manage, and review the RHH intervention. Sites will collaborate closely with Ariadne Labs who will lead site assessments, protocol development, and technology procurement plans. Sites will execute procurement plans once agreed to with Ariadne Labs, and provide staff for RHH clinical training, home-based care provision, and study management which will include patient enrollment, randomization, and data collection and submission to Ariadne Labs."


Rural hospitals are eligible to apply. Rural hospitals operating in value-based arrangements will be the most competitive, including HMOs, the Veterans Administration, the Indian Health Service, CMS transformation initiatives, rural Accountable Care Organizations, and rural Medicare Advantage plans
