Allina is working with a VC firm to develop systems of delivering acute care to patients in an at-home care setting.
Called Inbound Health, the new business will have its headquarters in Minneapolis. It builds on Allina’s continuing push since the COVID-19 pandemic to provide hospital services at home when possible, since inpatient capacity has been limited at times.
Inbound Health will work with clients to create “skilled nursing-at-home” programs as well as hospital-level services, according to an announcement Tuesday from Minneapolis-based Allina and Flare Capital Partners, which is based in Boston.
It’ll be interesting to see which initial diagnoses plans will cover.
