Marin Healthcare District Should Better Serve our Aging Population in Marin

Marin’s population is aging. There are many innovative ways that we can support our aging population. One of the ways that I have learned other communities are supporting the elderly is having hospital or clinic staff go to the patient’s house for some services rather than to have the patient go to the hospital or doctor’s office.

This is a growing trend. I have researched in the technology arena that there are many ways that patients can seek care via video on their computer or phone. It is my understanding that this can be better implemented with the privately owned Marin General Hospital Corporation and its clinics throughout our community that the Marin Healthcare District Board oversees.
