Philips-Commissioned RAND Report Highlights Promise of Home Health and Need for Multi-Stakeholder Action to Break Down Barriers to Adoption
Date:12/7/2010

healthcare experts on December 7th at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. The dialogue will center on considering home healthcare technology as a potential solution to the challenges that the U.S. healthcare system faces.

Panelists include:

  • Richard Brennan, Deputy Director of Government Affairs, National Association of Home Care and Hospice
  • Elinor Ginzler, Vice President, Health, AARP
  • Sandy Markwood, Chief Executive Officer, National Association of Area Agencies on Aging
  • Soeren Mattke, Senior Scientist, RAND, and Managing Director, RAND Health Advisory
  • Walter van Kuijen, General Manager, Home Monitoring, Philips Healthcare

"Plain and simple, people prefer to be in their homes," said panelist Elinor Ginzler, AARP vice president of health. An AARP survey released last month found that more than eight in ten Baby Boomers and effectively nine in ten people aged 65 and older report they want to live in their current homes for as long as possible. "Technology like home monitoring has the potential to help older Americans stay safer and get more of the care they need at home."

Home health leaders released a letter sent to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Administrator Donald Berwick, to encourage them to fund a remote monitoring demonstration project for home health.

Organizations who signed the letter include: Home Care Technology Association of America; National Association for Home Care & Hospice; Philips Healthcare; Visiting Nurses Association of America.

This research was sponsored by Royal Philips Electronics and carried out by The RAND Corporation. The report, "Health and Well-Being in the Home: A Global Analysis of Needs, Expectations, and Priorities for Home Health Care Technology," is available at www.rand.org.
