The pandemic hastened a growing trend to deliver more health care at home rather than in traditional health care settings. Health systems across the country are investing in the home as an alternative to hospitals and skilled nursing facilities. How will this shift affect the quality and costs of care? How can policy and payment adapt to support these new models of care? Join our panel of experts as they discuss their experiences and vision for navigating these uncharted waters and successfully delivering health care at home.
