Co-Located Summit

I am looking forward to participating in the Advanced Care at Home Summit, both to connect with those already in our small community and to watch the community grow as more health systems put their focus on care at home. This conference will encourage participants to dive into both the creation of effective programs, and the telling of the story to garner the support needed to grow and sustain them.

I’m thrilled to see the growing recognition of healthcare’s shift towards home-based services. The upcoming summit is a great opportunity to delve into the latest innovations and strategies for providing high-quality care in the increasingly preferred home setting.

Sohan Japa, Medical Director for Hospital at Home, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs

Hospital at Home is the future of healthcare. It is really exciting to meet patients where they’re at, particularly in the part of the country I serve, the upper Midwest, where people often travel hundreds of miles in treacherous weather for medical care. I am excited to learn from others, and share the knowledge I’ve gained from the strong growth of our program here in Michigan.
