Health Kiosks are self-contained medical units that utilize point of care devices, such as blood pressure monitors, ECG machines and glucometers. These devices are usually connected to a cloud-based platform that allows clinicians to remotely take care of patients. However, the full potential of health kiosks has yet to be realized. On the other hand, hospital-at-home care is becoming a reality. Hospital-at-home care models enable some patients who require acute-level care to receive it at home instead of a hospital. In some settings, this care delivery model has been shown to improve outcomes, enhance the patient experience, and reduce costs. While many see this model as a promising approach to improve value and care delivery, there are many challenges in implementation that should be overcome. This session will tackle these challenges of meeting the patient where they want to be seen outside of the four walls of the hospital.
