What to Watch Next

The challenges and possibilities of providing health care in patients’ homes was the topic of the December 7, 2021, presentation in the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School’s Distinguished Speaker Series.

Moderated by Daniel Polsky – Bloomberg Distinguished Professor of Health Economics and Policy for both the Carey Business School and the Bloomberg School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins, and the  director of the Hopkins Business of Health Initiative and co-director of the Hopkins Economics Alzheimer’s and Services Center – the panel discussion examined topics including the hospital-at-home model of care, revolutionary medical devices, health equity, and the impact of remote care on aging populations.

The panelists who took part in the hour-long event were Erin Bartley, chief operating officer for Medically Home, a Boston-based company that provides hospital-level care in the homes of patients; Sathya Elumalai, the founder, president, and CEO at Aidar Health, a digital medicine company based in Baltimore; and Bruce Leff, a professor of medicine at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and director of JHU’s Center for Transformative Geriatric Research.
