Quality of Home Health Care on The Rise as are New Patients in Homecare & Hospice
In the recent news cycle, more patients are entering into home health and hospice than in the last decade, largely due to the overall aging population. This surge has created more business and revenue for the Home Health Care and Hospice industry, and with it, a demand for improvement in quality of home health care. From 2016 through this year, statistics have recently shown improvement spanning all the major areas of the industry. In tandem, the rate of hospital readmission has shown little movement in the baseline measurement for the last 5 years.
