I recently attended the HomeCare 100 conference in Carlsbad, CA, put on by Lincoln Healthcare Events. What a great event! Let me share a little from one of the sessions. (Don't stop reading if you're not a home care agency! This information is good for ALL post-acute care providers!)
At VCPI’s recent annual Connections conference for healthcare executives, guest speaker Brent Hardaway gave a thought-provoking and informative presentation focusing on post-acute services and developing partnerships in population health management.
Hardaway, Vice President of Premier Consulting Solutions, nationally respected for their work in building healthcare alliances, talked about the changing healthcare landscape and both the burden and opportunity it offers for all providers, from hospitals and ACOs to LTPAC facilities. He noted that approximately 50% of US healthcare spending is concentrated in just 5% of the population and 97% is concentrated in 50% of the population.
