Extending the Stethoscope into the Home


Mobile and digital technologies are part of our everyday lives. Using these capabilities to “extend the stethoscope” into the home became a necessity during the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, a growing number of health care organizations are using technology to deliver hospital-level care at home for a range of more serious conditions. In this session, learn about how health care systems are:
- Developing critical and comprehensive infrastructures to meet the complex challenges of health care, including rising demand for at-home care;
- Sending patients home with the right tools to care for them, and what those tools are;
- Providing a greater range of at-home services that can make high-quality health care more accessible, convenient, and affordable for all.
