Trends Transforming Advanced Illness Care: The Promise of Technology

April 29 @ 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.

Panelists
Introduction: Carmel Shachar, Executive Director, The Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology, and Bioethics at Harvard Law School
Susan Ponder-Stansel, President and CEO, Alivia Care, a leader in providing serious illness care in the Southeastern US
David A. Jones, JR., Founder Chrysalis Ventures; and Director, Humana Inc.
Ravi Parikh, Assistant Professor, Department of Medical Ethics and Health Policy and Medicine,University of Pennsylvania; and Staff Physician, Corporal Michael J. Crescenz VA Medical Center
Moderator: Cheryl Matheis, Senior Fellow in Advanced Care and Health Policy, Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology, and Bioethics; and Strategic Advisor, Coalition to Transform Advanced Care (C-TAC)
