WaPo article on Health Quality Partners, a Medicare trial program that's having amazing outcomes by just having regular in-home nurse visits to elderly patients "If this was a pill, you'd do anything to get it":

This, too, is a legacy of a health system built for acute care. Hospitals make money when they do more to patients. They lose money when their beds are empty. Put simply, Health Quality Partners makes hospitals lose money. “There’s no doubt that it’s a hit to the bottom line,” says Rich Reif, the former CEO of Doylestown Hospital, which worked with HQP.
