o Most participants agreed that MIC@Home provides personalised care while maintaining patient’s quality of life, as patients were able to lead their lives in their familiar home environment while receiving treatment.
o It was also thought to be convenient for patients’ and caregivers who no longer need to make multiple trips to the hospital to seek health care or visit their loved ones.
o MIC@Home could allow care providers to make clinical decisions that are better adapted to patient’s living conditions and lifestyle habits at home.
o Length of stay and readmission rates are comparable or may be reduced. MIC@Home could also reduce hospital-acquired infections and allow patients to move freely at home without hospital restrictions, hence reducing deep vein thrombosis and functional decline in patients.
o Hospital beds will no longer be limited to availability of physical infrastructure but will now have portable sets of equipment, which could be scaled at shorter notice.
