Pippa Shulman, DO, MPH, Chief Medical Officer, Medically Home
Eliza “Pippa” Shulman, DO, MPH is the Chief Medical Officer of Medically Home, the world’s first virtual hospital. Medically Home simultaneously augments and challenges traditional brick and mortar health care delivery, using a combination of tech-enabled services, clinicians, and local partnerships to provide all the necessary capabilities to safely shift medical care from hospitals to patients’ homes. It’s not just a viable model for quality care and cost savings – it’s one that patients love and are eager to adopt.
Pippa’s leadership role at Medically Home is a natural outgrowth of a career focused on putting patients at the center of care.

Prior to that, Pippa was the Chief of Geriatrics and Palliative Care at Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates; tasked with leading value-based care initiatives as part of the ACO as well as multiple improvement efforts in home care, extended care facilities, ambulatory, and palliative care services.
Dr. Shulman is triple boarded in family medicine, preventive medicine, and hospice and palliative medicine. She is a graduate of the combined NH-Dartmouth Family Medicine Residency and Dartmouth Hitchcock Leadership Preventive Medicine Residency, which is focused on developing physicians to lead change and improve systems of care.

No More Buildings: Creating the New Paradigm of Healthcare : Acute care in the home has expanded widely beyond just traditional hospital substitution, supporting new care models for cancer care, chronic disease, and care for vulnerable populations which replaces facilities all together. There is a strong financial case to replace capital spend with investment in the home. By moving care outside of buildings, we place the patient and their caregiver at the center creating opportunity for a new paradigm of patient centeredness.
