Inpatient equivalent home-treatment (IEHT) was implemented in Germany in 2018. Persons with a mental disorder can be admitted to acute multiprofessional IEHT to avoid or shorten inpatient hospital treatment. Exclusion criteria are amongst others lack of consent of cohabitants or endangerment of self and others. Advantages of IEHT include normalization and reduction of stigma. Nevertheless, administrative requirements are high. While there is international evidence for home treatment and crisis resolution teams, there is still a lack of evidence for the concept of IEHT, although specific studies are currently being carried out (e.g. AktiV study financed by the Innovation Fund). Overall, IEHT is important for mental health services and should be further developed.
