Imagine a health care system that came to you -- a system that met you, as an individual, where you are, in your home, workplace, or community. Such a system would anticipate your needs and work to keep you as healthy as possible, and view any of your needs to access “sick care” as a possible sign that the system had let you down. This system would address the upstream drivers of your health status, and yet be as convenient and accessible as other elements of your life that you now take for granted, like ordering online. Such a system could be called ‘Health Care Without Walls.’
The Network for Excellence in Health Innovation (NEHI) has produced a vision of what Health Care Without Walls could look like in 2025, if and when all aspects of current technologies – from telemedicine to remote monitoring, and from fully interoperable electronic health records to artificial intelligence – were combined with a reconfigured health care work force to create it.
NEHI’s President and CEO, Susan Dentzer, will describe current trends and examples moving us toward the vision of Health Care Without Walls, and the public policy changes and private sector measures necessary to achieve it.
What would ‘Health Care Without Walls’ mean for health care professionals? For each profession that intersects with health care in every setting?
Please join us to hear Susan Dentzer share NEHI’s vision for the future of healthcare and its implications for all of us.
