The in-home hospitalization partnership announced last summer between Rochester-based Mayo Clinic and Boston-based Medically Home is becoming supersized with the news it is partnering with the California health care giant Kaiser Permanente.

The Bay Area health system operates 39 hospitals in eight states, serving more than 12 million members.

The venture will seek to deliver acute care in the home via remote command centers, reducing pressure for patients to travel to distant hospitals, while addressing the needs of underserved communities and isolated rural populations. Executives say the goal is a decentralization of care delivery, with a vantage point on the social determinants of health.

This looks like it might be really cool.
