The shift to performance-based contracts had already begun to push the delivery paradigm from episodic, facility-based care to more frequent interactions to care for the whole person, when they are not in the office. COVID-19 only fueled the fire, making it mission-critical to rethink where care happens, now and in the future.
We surveyed constituents across the healthcare landscape to understand where the ‘health-at-home’ trend is today, and where it is moving tomorrow. Our expert panel will identify and discuss the underlying factors driving care home, and opportunities for risk-bearing organizations to leverage the home to improve outcomes and reduce cost.
