UW-Stout professors' sociology research supports Mayo Clinic's Advanced Care at Home program
28 Oct 2023
What could health care of the future look like? It could look exactly like a program called Mayo Clinic Advanced Care at Home — hospital-quality care in your home — that already is offered at select locations across Mayo Clinic.
Just like it sounds, ACH gives certain types of patients the option to remain at home — using 21st century technology for virtual care and home visits to stay in touch with providers around the clock — rather than be admitted to a brick-and-mortar hospital.
Whether or not ACH and the growing hospital-at-home movement blossoms into the health care model of the future throughout the Mayo system and across the nation will take more time and more work. A piece of that work is being done by two University of Wisconsin-Stout sociology professors, Nels Paulson and Jeffrey Sweat, in collaboration with Mayo Clinic.
