Effective Care at Home

Meeting the Need and Overcoming the Barriers

Medicare projections for the future of healthcare make two things abundantly clear:

  • Home Care Icon


    for effective home care
  • Barrier Icon


    to get effective home care

NEED: Care for an Aging Population1

2015 Medicare population = 55,000,000
2016 Adults 65+ = 73,600,000
2030 Medicare population = 80,000,000+
2035 Adults 65+ = 78,000,000
2060 Adults 65+ = 94,000,000

BARRIER: Patient Acceptance


of patients who qualify for home care do not take advantage of it.


Technology-enhanced home healthcare, used as a powerful delivery tool against the demographic shift.

NEED: Care Extending into the Home


of readmission costs are driven by patients who go “home alone.”2

Studies show home-centered recovery can significantly reduce readmissions.

BARRIER: Policies Supporting Home Care

Effective 2019, CMS supplemental benefits will cover more home care services – ones that health plans may not be equipped to take advantage of.


Evolved systems that connect teams, data, and patients through telehealth, mobile devices, and beyond.

NEED: Coordinated Care

  • Home health can provide appropriate care for up to 20% of patients who receive care in a SNF.3

  • CMS reports length of stay in SNFs is tied to reimbursement rates rather than clinical need.4

BARRIER: Misallocated Resources

Lower-level care delivered by a higher-level clinician.

Care delivered in a facility that could effectively have been delivered at home.


Improved collaboration that gives discharge planners tools they need to select the best care site and provider for each patient’s unique case.

NEED: Better Quality Care at Lower Costs

BARRIER: Health Organizations Working Alone


Partnerships that reduce upfront and downstream costs from hospital readmissions, repeat surgeries, and other complications.

Together, we can help meet the need and
overcome the barriers to effective home care.
