Medically Home – Part 2

“All of the plans that I’ve seen … have always tried to restructure health care based on moving the money. … The real focus needs to be on the movement of care and the change of care.” These are the words of today’s guest, who continues his discussion about Medically Home, where the emphasis is the relationship to the patient in the home environment rather than a relationship with a payer. Medically Home is uniquely suited to deliver care to patients and families in their preferred location: the home.

Only 35 percent of the cost of care in this country is devoted to actual clinical care of patients. The rest is used for overhead – bricks and mortar. Today’s guest discusses the alternative, which is decentralizing much of this care and moving it into the patient home. His systematic approach, which he describes as a four-legged stool,” is the heart if this venture, Medically Home. We’ll examine his revolutionary, comprehensive strategy in this episode.
