Session 2: Brian Holzer MD presents “The Rise of the Patient and Importance of Patient Engagement”

Brian Holzer MD, CEO of Lacuna Health, discusses the rationale for Lacuna’s creation from Kindred Innovations and why the organization selected Louisville over other markets. He explores the shortfalls of the home health model, with particular attention to high rates of returning ED visits as a result of 45 day coverage limits. Discussion includes possible solutions in the landscape, such as: healthcare point solutions vs a platform for care and the aggregation of channels (transportation, pharmacy, access to care, etc.) to fill the gaps
