As the number of seniors builds up, home care services also continue to grow and expand. That’s why for the first time ever, people see home care as a better option compared to facility-based care, such as hospitals or other nursing facilities. Elly Kleinman, the founder of Americare Companies founder, is probably among the first ones to set an example as an industry leader, and add value to the home health care industry.
In the last years, the demand for home health care services is experiencing an increase on a global scale. With the continued priority for delivering improved patient outcomes, high customer satisfaction and creating savings, home health care is expected to remain a key policy solution in 2017. There are many factors that are favoring the growth and expansion of this market. Also, latest technologies like Telehealth, Telemedicine, eHealth have the potential to improve the quality of health care and to make it accessible to more people.
Home healthcare is preferred by both parties involved in the process. Namely, patients would rather receive care in the comfort of their own home, and providers at the same time can improve the care they’re delivering while increasing value and reducing costs.
Since home care demand is constantly increasing, Mr. Kleinman predicts home health care providers to enable more innovative delivery tools. With such an approach, elders can open their homes to the skilled people able to provide them with required help.
Also, the usage of sophisticated technologies makes the access to rural areas more available and provides healthcare for people living in rural areas. One way of achieving that is by reducing costs for employers working overtime hours in hospitals, creating more jobs, and giving home health care providers a chance to balance their prices so that more consumers can use these resources. That way, they can help more families in providing their loved ones with proper care, without leaving their homes.
Although there is still a lot that needs to be understood, from what Elly Kleinman has seen so far, there are plenty of opportunities for this industry to expand and become front and center. He likes to believe that together we can all contribute to creating an environment that stimulates growth and will allow more families to afford such home care services. Home health care includes visits by registered nurses, home health services provided by workers at home health agencies while using appropriate medical equipment, supplies, and appliances.
