The unprecedented challenges faced by home health care providers seem daunting. A growing preference by baby boomers toward receiving care at home will drive growth for years to come. However, the immediate challenges posed by uncertainties about the course and impact of new legislation and reimbursement models, combined with a shortage of caregivers and the increasing complexity of care needs, creates an unprecedented environment for home health care leaders at every level of the organization.
To address these challenges, an intelligent, automated mobile workforce management solution enables a provider to easily master the moment to deliver the right care at the right time by the right caregiver who is armed with the appropriate skills, information, resources and equipment. This transformational first step will ensure greater effectiveness of the care delivered and increase patient and caregiver satisfaction, all while reducing costs and maximizing reimbursements.
