Atrium, Best Buy Health partner on hospital-at-home 

CHARLOTTE, N.C., and MINNEAPOLIS – Atrium Health, an integrated, nonprofit health system with 40 hospitals and more than 1,400 care locations, and Best Buy Health are combining their strengths to develop new hospital-at-home offerings, they have announced. 

The partnership takes advantage of Atrium Health’s leadership position in telemedicine, including a well-established hospital-at-home program, and Best Buy Health’s existing expertise and abilities, as well as its strengths in innovative omnichannel experience, distinctive in-home service and world class supply chain. 

“Our partnership with Best Buy Health will help change the lives of our patients and consumers, giving them access to the tools and experiences they need to receive care in the comfort of their own home,” said Dr. Rasu Shrestha, chief innovation and commercialization officer at Advocate Health, of which Atrium Health is a part. “Our surveys show high levels of patient satisfaction for our hospital at home experience and the use of virtual care is a valuable tool in our efforts to eradicate both economic and geographic disparities in accessing health care services. Together with Best Buy Health, we will combine our strengths to provide better outcomes and equitable access for patients who will receive their care in the home. This will also allow for a more successful and seamless process for the providers caring for them.”   

Best Buy’s care at home platform, Current Health, was added to the company’s portfolio in 2021. 

The Current Health platform brings together remote patient monitoring, telehealth and patient engagement into a single solution for health care providers. 

“We knew Atrium Health was the right partner to help tackle the unique challenges within the care at home experience,” said Deborah Di Sanzo, president of Best Buy Health. “We’re excited to leverage our expertise in omnichannel, supply chain, Caring Center support and services, in-home support and our ability to connect patients and providers through Current Health’s care at home platform. Those strengths, combined with Atrium Health’s extensive clinical expertise and deep experience leading in virtual care, will help us improve and enable care in the home for everyone.”
