Post-acute care in the patient's home is the next wave in the evolution of 21st century healthcare.
FORT WASHINGTON, Penn. (PRWEB) January 24, 2019
RAM Technologies, Inc., the perennial leader in the development of enterprise software for Medicare Advantage health plans, is pleased to announce the availability of a new report as part of the “Sharing Knowledge to Improve Healthcare Administration” (SKIHA) program. This month, members of the SKIHA program (free registration) are granted complimentary access to the RAM report, The Role of Home Health in Healthcare of the Future.
As the US population grows older, and sicker, the need and desire for healthcare services in the home has increased exponentially. And as the percentage of patients with major complications and co-morbidities has grown, so has the need to find ways to reduce and control the associated costs of treating these issues. Home healthcare, the least expensive venue for post-acute care, provides tangible benefits not only in reducing costs, but also in allowing the patient to maintain her independence. In light of these advantages, CMS is sponsoring demonstration projects to broaden coverage of home health services, testing ways to improve the quality of care and further reduce spending.
“Post-acute care in the patient’s home is the next wave in the evolution of 21st century healthcare,” said Robert A. Tulio, President of RAM Technologies. “The sense of comfort and independence provided to a senior who is able to stay in his or her own home during recovery is immeasurable. We see the importance of this trend and have been proactive in providing the flexibility for our clients, MAPD / D-SNP health plans, to properly monitor and reimburse for these services.”
