About the training

The Hospital to Home (H2H) program is one example of how a Center for Independent Living (CIL) identified an existing program with the potential to be a service the health care industry would be interested in funding. The Independence Center (The IC) and UCHealth Memorial Hospital collaborated to facilitate successful transitions to home for patients with a complex or difficult discharge. Through H2H, The IC provides service assessment, coordination, and a network of local community-based organizations to provide support services that address social determinants of health for patients discharging from the hospital, so they can successfully thrive at home. Part One is now available using the link below and addresses the concept and vision of the H2H program. Part Two finished with the steps to set up a hospital to home program in your area.
