Home Care 100 brings home health industry leaders together to set share bestBeth Carpenter Home Care Consultant practices and lessons learned and ultimately to set strategy for the industry.  Today we share the executive summary from a roundtable held in Atlanta with 14 home health company leaders.  The poignant executive summary by home care consultant Beth Carpenter is compelling in both clarity and simplicity.

Among the key takeaways presented in the report are the following:

  • Home Care needs to focus on the image of the industry: Despite the compelling potential of home care to provide improved outcomes and reduced costs, the perception of the industry among policymakers is that it is growing unchecked and fraught with abuse.  This needs to be turned around.
  • The key is to Demonstrate Value: The way to win referrals in home health is changing.  It used to be that relationship building with discharge planners was the key.  Now hospitals care dearly about readmission reduction, so the winners will be those who can prove
  • Eliminate inappropriate care: The industry needs to provide services that result in high quality outcomes and band together to eliminate fraud and unneeded care
