master hospitalizacion domiciliaria Tech Universidad

Home Hospitalization is the driving force of change in modern healthcare with care focused on people and their health and social needs.  

Demographic change requires an extreme rethinking of health care, previously focused on acute processes and cure as the primary objective, with hospitals as the center of care. The idea is to lean towards a medicine aimed at care rather than cure and having the person and his or her closest environment, the home where he or she lives, as its center. This is without reducing the quality of care or the use of hospital-intensive resources, but being much more efficient in the use and consumption of both public and private resources. 

Our patients and users, to whom we owe it to ourselves, have already experienced the change that we have been hearing about year after year for decades from the various medical societies and healthcare managers. As we have seen, we have an ageing society with exacerbated chronic problems and out-of-hospital care needs but with the intensity, technology and knowledge that is provided daily in our hospitals. And here, the best prepared to lead this change are the Home Hospitalization Units.  

This program is focused on deepening the understanding of all aspects which make home hospitalization unique and different from other medical specialties. It also demonstrates the weaknesses and future opportunities we have ahead of us, making the most of new educative technology available. 

The content is presented in a rigorous way with the latest scientific evidence and clinical cases which help to increase our knowledge. This is with the aim of sharing experiences and new techniques that are already used by medical colleagues in the various Home Hospitalization Units around the world.
