Rarely has one speaker had such a command of the past, the current and the future possibilities for home centered care. Eric Dishman has lived with health and caregiving issues most of his life, but he has overcome extreme obstacles and remained true to a quest to make the healthcare delivery system better for all. His tireless work in developing telehealth solutions that help the caregiver, the patient and society have made his a powerful force in charting the course for the future of home health. Please take the time to check out this video recording of the Institute of Medicine workshop on the future of home health, and visit the IOM website for more video recordings of the 2 day event held earlier this fall in Washington, DC.
All presentations were noteworthy, but his one by Dr. Steven Landers’ presentation is especially pertinent and impactful.

There is much more to come, and much to do as we, as a nation, work on how we are going to provide efficient, effective care to this burgeoning boomer population. We, at corecubed, are excited to be included in this wonderful process, and hope to continue to be at the forefront of changes that are occurring to achieve the goal of the triple aim: a healthier population, more efficient allocation of healthcare resources, and better patient experiences.
