5 Things You Might Be Doing Wrong in Home Care Social Media Marketing

Posted by Ken Accardi on Sep 19, 2011 10:06:00 AM

In a post two weeks ago I shared my admiration for Jason Tweed at Leading Home Care.  Normally I only share content from an individual guest blogger every few months, but this piece by Jason couldn't be overlooked.  It's also very interesting on the heels of a popular LinkedIn discussion initiated by Leading Hime Care about "Why Social Media Marketing Doesn't Work in Home Care."  Without further ado, here's Jason's article about mistakes in social media marketing:

Home Care Software Geek Shares Industry predictions from John Halamka

Posted by Ken Accardi on Sep 12, 2011 10:05:00 AM

I met John Halamka on the sidelines of the soccer fields in town back when my daughter Casey and John's daughter Laura were on the same team.  Both of our daughters are in college now, so this must have been a good 7 or 8 years ago.  My daughter retired from soccer when she got the lead role in Annie at age 12.  Sitting on the sidelines we didn't talk much about work although occaisionally he'd bring his laptop and would be coding something so I figured he was some kind of tech geek like me.  Well it turns out that John might actually be the ultimate health care tech geek.  He's the Chief Information Officer (CIO) for Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and for Harvard Medical School (and he's an emergency room physician on the side).  John has been on the covers of more health care magazines and the keynote speaker at more health IT conferences than anyone else I'm aware of.

How to Start a Home Care Business: The Fundamentals

Posted by Ken Accardi on Sep 7, 2011 1:01:00 PM

Ginny Kenyon, expert consultant and principal at Kenyon Home Care Consulting, spends most of her time helping people start home care agencies.  Risa Baker, owner of Partners 31, helps people sell their home care agencies and also makes time to present at conferences and in other forums to help agency owners plan for a successful exit.  So when I saw that Ginny was doing a series of posts about how to successfully start a home care business with help from Risa, I immediately wanted to tell people on the Ankota blog about it.
