Why Health Care is Going Home

Major health care market trends--demographics, health economics, consumer preferences, and advancements in technology--portend an increasing role for home-based care. Dr. Landers will review current models of home care, and explore how physicians and hospitals can collaborate with home care providers to meet the challenges they face in the era of health reform. He will look to the future through new models of home and transitional care that reduce re-hospitalizations and costs, but ultimately improve patient experiences and clinical outcomes.
