The third episode is about Financial Impact of Technology in the Homecare psace. We discuss the direct and indirect costs of implementing Technology, and as importantly, the cost of NOT fully utilizing the Technologies available to Homecare providers.
As has been a common thread in this series of discussion, one of the critical factors in improving your financial outlook through the usage of Technology is the human component in adapting to and embracing the technologies available. Also how the Culture Change within Homecare companies can be the biggest “cost.”

The second episode is about Technology as it relates to Policy and Regulatory matters in Homecare. We discuss where Technology has driven policy changes, and also how Technology is enabling Regulatory Compliance for Homecare providers.
An interesting tangent was taken about the struggles of many agencies to afford the technologies that would further enhance their compliance with policies and regulations. Also, how the adoption and usage of Technology is still much of the problem when it comes to the intersection of Technology and Homecare.
