JOINT PRESS RELEASE - The Corridor Group, Inc. and VCPI Release Results of Sponsored White Paper

Leading Executives in Home Care Share Top Challenges, Emerging Strategies and Guidance for the New Era of Health Care

Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Overland Park, Kansas, November 1,2011 - The Corridor Group, Inc. (TCG) and VCPI announce they have released an industry white paper detailing perspectives from leading home care and hospice executives regarding top challenges and emerging strategies for the new era of health care.

 Never before have home care executives faced the perfect storm: where payment cuts, payment reform, and increased regulatory oversight are simultaneously changing the landscape of the industry as we know it,” stated Katheen J. Dodd, CEO and founder of TCG.  

TCG and VCPI retained a market research firm to interview home care executives across the United States. Executives stated the following are top items of focus and concern:

  • Preparing and partnering for accountable care, bundled payments and the new care continuum for the 21st century

  • Gaining operational efficiencies for competitive survival

  • Increased regulatory scrutiny

 The Bottom Line

The study highlights the fact that decisions executives make today will have a dramatic effect as the episodic and bundled payment world unfolds.

“The findings in this study support what we’ve been hearing from providers for quite some time:  the change to reimbursements is just one of a host of issues on their mind,” said Loren Claypool, managing director of VCPI. “When you add it to healthcare reform, the impact of the economy and the advances taking place in technology, these executives face daily challenges. As a result, the decisions they make today will impact their business in the future, as well as their ability to provide quality care.”
