Service type: Subacute care is between hospital care and nursing home care, such as inpatient rehab. Outpatient care is a broad term that includes outpatient visit, outpatient surgery, etc. Home health care is visiting nursing care, home rehab and similar services. Hospice is terminal care either at home or in a facility.
