In May of 2020, Justin Bekelman, MD, an Advisor to Reimagine Care, Director of the Penn Center for Cancer Care Innovation, and Professor in the Departments of Radiation Oncology, Medicine and Medical Ethics and Health Policy at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, sat for an interview with The ASCO Post, the online publication of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO).

Dr. Bekelman offers in-the-moment perspective on how the pandemic shifted the calculus for home-based care, opening the way for this powerful new care model for patients, clinicians, and health systems.

Below are highlights from the interview, which focused on the experience of Penn Medicine’s Cancer Care @ Home program, as well as updates Dr. Bekelman shared in a talk at Duke Margolis Center for Health Policy in December 2021.
