In Healthcare industry news we are seeing daily reports of organizations launching home-based care programs. We’re seeing Hospital at Home, SNF at Home, and Mayo Clinic launched an advanced care at home model as an example.
The reality is that payors, health care organizations, and senior advocates are looking for new and creative ways to keep seniors at home with the care and services they need. Luckily we have been specializing in this type of care for over 30 years!
Policymakers recognize the growing demand and are rethinking how we deliver care to seniors. Spiking hospitalizations and readmission rates are causing healthcare costs to surge. Keeping patients at home is the goal of everyone. In fact, expanding home and community-based services is part of the legislative package that was passed on November 19, 2021, as part of the Build Back Better Act.
Home care services are an integral part of any home-based care model. Researchers have found more than 90% of hospital readmissions can be traced to non-clinical factors, such as having insufficient support for day-to-day functional needs after a patient is discharged home.
This article outlines how we can all work together to, “Build Back Better for Seniors!” We would love to talk to you in more detail about how our home care services can help you and your family reduce hospitalizations and improve outcomes for your loved ones.
