By Geoff Nudd on Apr 21, 2015

By Jacquelyn Kung on Apr 27, 2015

Baby boomers are the fastest growing demographic in America. According to Euromonitor International, Boomers have a collective purchasing power of over $15 trillion.

How Hospital Readmission Rates Can Grow Your Home Care Agency

By Derek Jones on Apr 17, 2015

Many think about the Affordable Care Act (ACA) as the requirement to hold health insurance, yet major initiatives were also included in the ACA to slow the growth of health care costs over time. One of the main ways this is happening is by reducing the readmission rate of patients back into hospitals within 30 days — also known as the HHCR or Hospital Readmission Reduction Program. This is a $26B industry of which $17B is estimated to be pegged to preventable readmission.
