The Home Care Association of Florida urges its members who have yet to sign up to go on-line and to register for participation in this important national industry study. More than 700 interviews have been conducted to date, nearing the goal of 1,000 surveys completed. We want to be sure that our state is adequately represented in the Study results.
The National State of the Home Care Industry survey is conducted through 20 minutes phone interviews with senior managers scheduled at times that are convenient for you. It will address current practices and future strategies in the areas of IS/EHR, telehealth, new health care models and operations.
Participating agencies will be among the first to receive in-depth reports plus strategic recommendations from the findings. The results will also include insights into what practices the top agencies, those with the best financial and quality outcomes, are using and planning.
The Study is sponsored by NAHC, CHAP, The Joint Commission, the Forum of State Associations, Delta Health Technologies, HealthWyse and Fazzi Associates. Results are expected to be released in late May or early June of this year. A major presentation on findings will be presented at the 2013 National Association for Home Care and Hospice Annual Meeting, October 31 – November 3, 2013 in Washington, DC.
To participate in the study interviews, your agency must meet the following three criteria:
- Medicare certified
- Medicare revenues of $500,000 or higher
- Home Health Compare scores for two or more reporting periods
