E12 - When Healthcare Comes Home: Advancing a Continuum of Choice
Healthcare is moving beyond the walls of the hospital. This is due in part to a growing population that requires medical care but is stable enough to be treated at home. Caring for these populations in their own home is more convenient and cost effective than providing that same care in a traditional medical setting. Home environments that support medical care can reduce unnecessary hospitalization, influence health and well-being, and help to maintain independence. This session will highlight the development of an online interactive Design Insights and Strategies tool for healthcare at home, including a review of the evidence base.
