“At WellSky, we know that providers across post-acute and community care are facing unprecedented challenges, including the COVID-19 pandemic, increasing regulation, provider consolidation, and value-based reimbursement. All of these factors are dramatically changing industry landscapes,” said Bill Miller, CEO of WellSky. “That’s why WellSky is building powerful technology to stay ahead and stay prepared for changes that affect our clients’ ability to deliver vital care.
