Today I'm joining with several hundred other home care executive leaders at the Northeast Home Health Leadership Summit ,entitled "On the Road to Reform." We're in the same neighborhood of Boston where the Massachusetts state senatorial race changed the course of health care reform less than 24 hours ago. Isn't it Ironic!
But before getting too worried about anything, let's put some things into perspective:
- Health care is a source of job growth
- Home care will win for many reasons including the aging population, the improved patient satisfaction that comes with aging in place, and the cost reduction that occurs when patients stay out of hospitals
- The best pieces of health care reform will survive and thrive
The bottom line is that the future of home health care is bright!
Winston Churchill said, "Success is moving from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm" - not a bad thought.
But if you're still feeling a little stressed perhaps listening to Alanis Morissette sing her hit "Ironic" will help give you some relief. Enjoy!
p.s. - there will be lot's to blog about as a result of this home health leadership summit - Stay Tuned!
