Building the Out of Hospital Health Care Services System

An aging population with an increasing burden of one or more chronic diseases will require much more robust community based care health services. Can we bring together the myriad of existing health services into a more organized and connected system to support the patient and family care journey? And can we make the best investments for a sustainable future health care system.
