Trends Transforming Advanced Illness Care: The Promise of Technology

April 29th, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Event Description

COVID and other dynamic forces are upending traditional ways of caring for people with serious and advanced illness. People want care in their home and community, not isolated in institutions. Technology, such as telehealth, has potential to accelerate community care, but will the digital divide impede access?

Join us on April 29, to hear from three experts active in care for those in the late stages of life: an innovative community provider; a VC funder who invests in the advanced illness field; and a palliative care clinician steeped in the academic and tech communities.
