    The Future of Primary Care: Why Doctor House Calls Are Here to Stay

    Over the past few years, value-based care initiatives, Medicare Advantage growth and shifting demographics have fueled the return of doctor house calls.

    How Technology Can Drive Continuity of Care to Improve Patient and Clinician Health

    Even before the coronavirus pandemic, the post-acute industry was at an inflection point: we are facing a historic influx of patients in need of our services, yet we are pushed to operate under regulations that chip away at margins and compete for staff who are being lured away by companies who can pay more with far less risk to personal health. This session will explore how technology can be a significant part of the solution in these extraordinary times.
