Health Business Group to offer webinar on home health investment opportunities
PRLog – Dec. 3, 2014 – BOSTON — Health Business Group is presenting a complimentary webinar on investment opportunities in home health, featuring CareCentrix Chief Growth Officer Steve Wogen andHome Care Delivered Founder & Chairman Gordy Fox along with Health Business Group’s David E. Williams and Karen Donovan.
“Home health is emerging from its sleepy origins as a minor ancillary service to become a key enabler of successful population health strategies,” said Williams. “Leading Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) and health plans are learning how to incorporate home health into a holistic post-acute care strategy to improve quality and contain costs.”
More complex care is moving to the home, agencies are consolidating, and new analytics and technology solutions are being deployed to support the increased demands. Public and private payers are moving toward risk-based financing models and sole source arrangements to align incentives. Consumer engagement is starting to play a meaningful role.
The shift to the home offers opportunities for savvy providers, payers, entrepreneurs and investors. The webinar, scheduled for December 10, 2014 from 1-2 pm EST features pragmatic insights from a leading home care benefits manager, home care supplies company, and health care business consultant.
Presenters will discuss
· How top ACOs and health plans are leveraging the home in their post-acute strategies
· Why the trend toward care at home will continue
· The hidden opportunities in out-of-episode services and supplies
· How the federal government is encouraging a shift to the home
· The top 5 opportunities for strategic and financial investors in 2015
Complimentary registration is available here.
