Post-Acute Care Matters
HME providers’ role in the transformation of healthcare
The transformation of the healthcare industry from a volume-based model to a value-based model provides a significant opportunity for post-acute care providers to play a critical role in the overall healthcare continuum. As the industry continues to shift to more care being provided outside of the hospital or doctor’s office and into the home, home medical equipment (HME) providers are particularly well-positioned to add value by delivering cost-effective care, medication and supplies that result in better patient outcomes at a lower cost. In a collaborative environment, this is the key to financial sustainability.
