This paper is part of a suite of materials developed to support providers and commissioners making decisions about schemes to move healthcare currently provided in acute hospitals to community-based settings. It presents a set of case studies illustrating how services and schemes can support hospital admission avoidance. These include: telecare hubs, rapid response services, emergency ambulatory care services, enhanced rapid response services, emergency multidisciplinary units, single point of access, and palliative care services.
