d.health Policy Whitepaper
This year's Presidential primary campaign has largely ignored an issue paramount to a growing segment of our population.
d.health Policy Whitepaper
Nearly 90% of Americans prefer to age at home, yet barriers, such as antiquated reimbursement and licensing policies, prevent Americans from realizing this goal. To address this political "blind spot," the Summit assembled health, technology, finance and policy leaders to discuss today's best ideas, form tomorrow's partnerships, and launch the care models of the future. The d.health 2016 Policy Report provides policy recommendations based on what was an exciting day of discussion and collaborative thinking. 
"Universal medical licensure (versus state by state)... facilitates efficient care delivery for aging-in-place patients (and their caregivers), and helps maximize the impact of highly specialized physicians.
— Owen Tripp, Co-Founder & CEO, Grand Rounds
