Managing Post Acute Care Operations in a Storm

Posted by Will Hicklen on Oct 29, 2012 10:49:00 AM

How do you manage operations when disaster strikes? Technology and good planning should be your allies.

Storms threaten patient safety and the delivery of post acute care, but a little planning and some good technology can help hospitals, ACOs and post acute providers of all types to keep things running smoothly. Making sure the right patients continue to get the right care at the right time should be easy with the right business practices and technology--even during a weather emergency.

In Home Care: The Times They are A-Changing

Posted by Ken Accardi on Oct 1, 2012 11:04:00 AM

A lot of the people who read our blog are new to home care, just like we were some years ago when we started Ankota.  Along our journey, we've met some great people and mentors.  One of them is Ginny Kenyon from Kenyon Home Care Consulting.  Today's blog post comes from Ginny's site.  Another great mentor, who authored today's post is Pat Drea, Chief Operating Officer of Visiting Angels.  I've met Pat twice and have shared previous blog posts based on Pat's presentations.  Pat is a fantastic presenter, and what's most impressive is that she seems to know almost everyone in home care and during her presentations she shares anecdotes relevant to her points and using real examples from people in the crowd. Great lady!
