Healing and Ageing in Place - Toward a Virtual Hospital

June 13, 2019
13:30 - 14:45
Room 208
We know the vast majority of patients and elderly citizens prefer to heal and age in place, where they usually can enjoy a better quality of life surrounded by their loved ones. We also know homecare is a cost-effective option for health systems struggling with sustainability. But how far are we ready to go beyond hospital walls? Could the future of hospitals be completely virtual? The remote monitoring technologies have been around but are we ready to move away from a brick and mortar legacy infrastructure and tradition? And can we guarantee the same level of quality for complex, elderly or end-of-life care? This session will highlight global homecare and virtual hospital innovations and discuss health systems' readiness to truly move care beyond hospital walls.
