New Era of Emergency Response and Remote Patient Monitoring

Use of connected health devices outside of healthcare facilities is growing – whether provided through remote patient monitoring programs or acquired directly by consumers. These devices and apps open new opportunities to monitor patient status and chronic conditions, detect previously unknown health issues, and respond quickly in emergencies. This session addresses new opportunities for health monitoring, including cardiac conditions, sleep disorders, and safety monitoring for all ages. It also assesses the limits of technology and the complimentary role played by home care services and other professionals supporting connected health models. Speakers address how traditional companies will be in direct competition with other players in the future, and the implications for future care and monitoring services.

An increasing number of devices are incorporating life-saving functionality such as medical monitoring and fall detection, while others are integrating into systems of care to deliver insights to clinicians and improve patient outcomes.

Who’s Paying for Healthcare? New Business Models

The healthcare industry is in the midst of widespread change, with digital delivery of care now commonplace. Increasingly, care providers and insurers are embracing patient-generated health data from devices and moving to a more consumer-centric design of delivering care at home. However, with the COVID-19 public health emergency set to end this year, emergency use authorizations and waivers for many initiatives will be phased out in 2023. This will impact reimbursement, channels, and the strategies of many companies. Players in the health at home space must be prepared to best position themselves to this coming change, evaluating their business models, services, and ways of delivering healthcare.

11:00 AM CT

Welcome & Analyst Insight

Parks Associates provides insight into new business models, including reimbursements and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in healthcare delivery.

11:15 AM CT

Understanding Reimbursements and Health Tech of the Future

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) established a temporary waiver program providing reimbursement for hospital-at-home services in 2020 and many healthcare providers are calling for a continuation of the program. At the same time, CMS reduced some payments for remote patient monitoring providers. Health systems, providers, and payors are still navigating the business models that make connected care work, with organizations engaged in value-based care models leading the way. This session addresses the impact of hospital at home programs, consumer and medical grade devices and the impact on understanding health status, and the future role of health tech in the home.

Keynote

12:30 PM CT

Consumerization of Healthcare: Shifting Focus

The US healthcare industry is in the midst of transformation, including an overhaul of its care delivery infrastructure from physical to digital and the rise of informed and increasingly empowered consumers. Managing consumers’ healthcare experience is no longer a selling point, but a must-deliver component of technology vendors’ solutions. This session addresses the shifting focus for health care providers and service providers to a more consumer centric view, where the patient has more insight and control into their own health.
