How can we reduce hospital readmission rates through care coordination at home? Doctor Eric Rackow, currently on VirtualHealth's Board of Directors, joins us today to discuss the benefits of treating chronic illnesses outside of the hospital. Dr. Rackow's past experience as president of Humana at Home, CEO of Seniorbridge, and President and CMO of NYU Hospital Center gives him a unique perspective. He explains that the healthcare industry is setting its focus on chronic care, which empowers organizations to provide better care for medical conditions at home. This shift is leading to decreased readmission rates up to 50%, lowered costs, and improved resource utilization. Dr. Rackow then walks us through the 3 most important aspects of living a healthy life in order to prevent chronic illness.
