February 16, 2018| Blog

Extensive paperwork, unauthorized claims, incorrect member IDs and billing codes, discrepancies between EVV data and claim data – staying on top of compliance requirements can be a homecare provider’s nightmare.

Three questions I hear the most

January 30, 2018| Blog

As the homecare industry adapts to new policies, technologies and member needs, agencies often wonder how they can make processes more efficient and simplify day-to-day tasks to focus on providing quality care. Here are a few of the most common questions we receive:

How can we maximize caregiver schedules?

Homecare agencies that provide automated systems can simplify scheduling and become better equipped to avoid mix-ups, while maximizing each aide’s schedule and capabilities. A platform with an integrated dashboard also allows aides to access a “single source of truth” to view and manage their own schedules. A fully integrated homecare management platform will also allow agencies to maximize authorized hours, preventing revenue loss and ensuring that your patients aren’t left waiting for care, which will be incredibly important as the industry navigates changing Medicaid policies.

Predictions for 2018: The year of growing demand and uncertainty

January 9, 2018| Blog

As 2017 comes to a close, we have been reflecting on a year full of change and growth. We move into the new year with a lot of unknowns, but recognize the potential of the months to come. Here are a few predictions for what we might see in homecare, and in the health care industry in general.

Demand is growing and resources are getting tighter

We already know that more of the population is requiring homecare as the massive Baby Boomer generation ages. In a competitive job environment, homecare will continue to struggle to attract the quality aide talent required to care for the influx of members. Many potential candidates are finding better paid jobs outside of homecare and healthcare, which will tighten an already limited reserve of caregivers. Read More

The future of American jobs is taking care of the elderly

November 2, 2017 – Dan Kopf, Quartz

There’s been an increase in demand for homecare services in recent years, especially as the baby boomer generation ages into retirement and more individuals are turning to homecare as an alternative to nursing homes. The shift is illustrated in this Quartz article, which outlines the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ predictions of which jobs will grow the fastest from 2016 to 2026. According to the Bureau, the job of “personal-care aide” will grow faster than any other and “home-health aide” is fourth on the list.  If the Bureau is accurate, these jobs will account for 10 percent of all jobs created over the next decade, which means homecare agencies will have to scale to meet the rising demand to care for the aging population.

State of the Industry: Managing Homecare in a New Business Climate

HomeCare Magazine:

Featuring Scott Schwartz

Kaleidoscope pieces in motion

“We’re in the throes of transition, and the kaleidoscope pieces are in motion,” says Laura Adams.

Adams specializes in using information technology in large-scale collaborative settings, for improving the quality, safety and value of health care. She leads the Rhode Island Quality Institute and adds to her kaleidoscope comparison: “History will look upon this era in health care as one of enormous challenge, but also one of stunning progress at exponential speed.”

Asked about how different parts of the system play into new payment models, Adams says, “How can homecare lead? Health care is understanding more.”

From the back office to the front of the house and face to face with patients—homecare is a tall order. The industry builds its agenda from the data: aging-in-place baby boomers and people managing disabilities from birth through life; post-acute care wellness, safety and prevention goals; regulation and compliance requirements; and the impact of a growing managed-care culture.
