January’s Mayo Clinic Health Letter included an interview with Michael Maniaci, M.D., physician leader of Advanced Care at Home at Mayo Clinic. He explained that some people in the hospital can be treated in their own homes, as long as they don’t require surgery, invasive procedures or advanced imaging.

Receiving advanced care at home involves setting up a command center to serve as a virtual hospital ward and checking in with medical teams through a tablet. This type of advanced care at home is ideal for people with heart failure, pneumonia, cellulitis or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease exacerbations.

In this Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Maniaci goes in-depth to discuss what advanced care at home involves, who can benefit from it, how the process works and how it can meet the expected higher demand for health care in the future.
