President Trump has taken office with a Republican majority in both the Senate and House of Representatives. The new administration already has taken action that will impact home care, including the failed appeal of the Affordable Care Act, and nominating Alexander Acosta as the next Secretary of Labor and Judge Neil Gorsuch as the next U.S. Supreme Court justice. What do these and other developments mean for home care companies? No one can say with certainty what will happen, but investigations and lawsuits against healthcare and home care companies continue to rise, while the new political administration’s policy agenda remains in flux.

Cybercrime is one of the top economic crimes in the world, with cost estimates soon to reach into the trillions. Not only have victim demographics expanded from the large well-known organizations to the small and mid-sized, healthcare providers are now a consistent target. The recent ransomware attacks, and threats of more to come, have raised questions regarding security and available protection mechanisms.
In this episode, Tripp Matthews of Curaport and Danielle Pierotti of Elevating HOME are joined by Ryan Cavanaugh, CIO of Fusion Healthcare, and Teresa Craig, VP of Client Strategy at Netsmart Technologies. The second episode is about Technology as it relates to Policy and Regulatory matters in Homecare. We discuss where Technology has driven policy changes, and also how Technology is enabling Regulatory Compliance for Homecare providers.
An interesting tangent was taken about the struggles of many agencies to afford the technologies that would further enhance their compliance with policies and regulations. Also, how the adoption and usage of Technology is still much of the problem when it comes to the intersection of Technology and Homecare.
When you want to kick your recruitment efforts up a notch, it's time to implement text messaging. When you add mass SMS as a form of communication, you will reach a wide audience of potential recruits. The younger crowd prefers text messaging over emails and phone calls. If you aren't using a text messaging platform, you are missing out on a big demographic of job candidates. As you continue to excel as a recruiter, it's time to find a text messaging software platform to reach your recruits faster.
In this special mini-series of podcasts, the folks of ElevatingHOME have joined forces with Curaport to delve into the world of Homecare and its usage of Technology. There will be several episodes through the month of August.
In this initial episode, Tripp Matthews of Curaport and Danielle Pierotti of Elevating HOME are joined by Mike Wons, CTO of the State of Illinois, and Tracey Moorhead, CEO of ElevatingHOME. The first episode is fundamentally an overview of where the Homecare industry is relative to its use of Technology. Much of the conversation is around why aren't more Homecare agencies utilizing Technology to its fullest, and how that can change.
Also, some obstacles to this utilization is discussed, as well as why there is so much optimism about this trend changing in the months and years to come.
This is a great series, and we are happy to have you on this journey with us!
