d.health 2016 Panel The Next Generation House Call
Fueled by new technological advances, the 21st century house call is emerging chiefly to increase access to care. Point-of-care diagnostics, remote monitoring and increasingly ubiquitous broadband technology are enabling care to return to the home. At the same time, other forces, including aging populations, growing burden of chronic conditions, consumer empowerment, and the need for cost-effective care, are driving adoption.
