Hospital – Home Care Collaboration Project

IHA, the Home Care Association of New York State (HCA), and HANYS have developed a Statewide Hospital-Home Care Collaboration program as a means of facilitating innovative models of hospital-home care partnerships for front-end/pre-acute hospital care as well as far-end/post-hospital care, recovery, and long-term support.

This effort has focused on curating and hosting a series of webinars featuring prototypes of hospital and home care collaboration models that can be emulated by other providers statewide — working together, across settings.

This initiative is in its second year. To date, the series has delivered 11 webinars, with an additional 5 scheduled through March of 2022. Each webinar has featured a hospital and home care agency who have developed a unique partnership through the pandemic that has implications beyond a post -pandemic world.

A statewide summit: Models of Transformative Collaboration was held on December 2, 2021 and included panel discussions with NYS Department of Health, Vaccine hubs, the office of Mental Health, integrated primary care/mental health clinics and aging networks.

A resource page is available on the IHA website and includes recorded versions of these webinars as well as other tools to help organization develop models of collaboration. All assets developed as part of this project are free. Visit our resource page at
