SUMMARY

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing a virtual public meeting, “Home as a Health Care Hub – Stakeholder Listening Session”. The purpose of this meeting is to discuss the home environment as an integral part of the health care system, including hearing stakeholder ideas on aspects to consider in developing the Home as a Health Care Hub prototype for all people in the U.S. 

BACKGROUND

On April 23, 2024, the FDA announced a new initiative, Home as a Health Care Hub aimed to help reimagine the home environment as an integral part of the health care system with the goal of advancing health equity for all people in the U.S (https://www.fda.gov/medical-devices/medical-devices-news-and-events/fda-launches-health-care-home-initiative-help-advance-health-equity).  As part of this initiative, the FDA's Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) has contracted with an architectural firm that designs innovative buildings with health and equity in mind, to consider the needs of variable models of a home and tailor solutions with opportunities to adapt and evolve in complexity and scale. The hub will be designed as virtual reality (VR)- prototypes of the home and is expected to be completed by the end of 2024. The FDA is using diabetes as an example health condition for the prototypes given the impacts over the lifecycle of someone living with this condition. The Home as a Health Care Hub prototypes are the beginning of the conversation—helping device developers consider novel design approaches, aiding providers to consider opportunities to educate patients and extend care options, generating discussions on value-based care paradigms, and opening opportunities to bring clinical trials and other evidence generation processes to underrepresented communities through the home.

OBJECTIVES: 

1. Share information about FDA’s newly launched Home as a Health Care Hub initiative
2. Solicit input from a broad set of stakeholders to inform future direction of the Home as a Health Care Hub initiative 
3. Create a dialogue on the barriers and opportunities for the delivery of health care and the generation of clinical evidence in the home environment
