Session Overview

With the challenges facing the U.S. healthcare system – increasing demand, spiraling costs and limited resources – it’s not surprising that providers and consumers alike are feeling the pressure to use resources more efficiently and cost effectively. The good news is that technology and emerging care delivery models now make it possible to have care delivered in the home or on the go. This discussion will center on aging in place technologies and the future of the digital home. We’ll explore how the use of smartphones, tablets and other mobile, connected technologies can play a central role in enabling the patient centered medical home, improve quality of life, enhance peace of mind, and ultimately create the framework for independent living and patient self-management. 

Session Objectives

  • Explore emerging care delivery models as healthcare moves away from volume-based to value-based care.
  • Discuss the role the digital home can play in patient centered medical homes. 
  • Learn how mobile technologies can empower patient self-management and independent living.
