Reducing Home Health Overutilization with In-Home Outpatient PT: A Hoag Hospital and Luna Case Study

In a groundbreaking study, Hoag Hospital, a leading not-for-profit regional healthcare delivery network in Orange County, California, presented the results of a two-year analysis at the 2023 American Association of Orthopedic Executives (AAOE) conference. The study demonstrated that the Luna in-home outpatient physical therapy care model reduces costs by 52% compared with traditional home health for total knee and hip replacements.

Hoag Orthopedic Institute conducted the study between 2021 and 2023 in collaboration with Luna, the leading provider of in-home outpatient physical therapy, to create a scalable solution aimed at reducing per-episode care costs through the use of in-home outpatient physical therapy in lieu of traditional home health services.
