  •   Webinar

  •   Darby Anderson

In this free webinar, sponsored by CellTrak, Darby Anderson discusses what EVV really means.  Because in December 2016, President Obama signed the 21st Century Cures Act. The act itself covers a variety of topics – and notably requires states to implement electronic visit verification (EVV) for Medicaid Personal Care  services and Home Health Care Services.  EVV offers many benefits to agencies and care providers, and choosing the right solution can lead to improved operating efficiency, caregiver communication, quality of care, and client satisfaction.

  •   Podcast
  •   3/8/2017
  •   Tripp Matthews, Nick Seabrook

Nick Seabrook of BlackTree Healthcare Consulting returns for a discussion on two of the most important conferences in the healthcare industry.  He recounts the 100 conference in Florida, particularly what was on the minds of the leaders of the Homecare industry (hint:  Trump).

He also talks about his first visit to the HIMSS conference, the enormity of that show, and what the post-acute care space can learn from this conference.

We also get pretty candid about the current state of the Homecare "voice" in the legislative and policy landscape - and how our industry can improve their standing.

Episode 22: Angelo Spinola - Healthcare Legal Expert

  •   Podcast
  •   2/2/2017
  •   Tripp Matthews, Angelo Spinola

In the first podcast of 2017, Tripp is joined by healthcare legal expert Angelo Spinola of Littler Mendelson, P.C.  Angelo really gets to the heart of some of the recent legal and legislative happenings in the Home Care space – specifically the Overtime Exemption and FLSA regulations.  Very interesting insight into this relatively unknown and often misunderstood law.

The conversation turns more “macro” with an in depth discussion into the new world order of healthcare laws and regulations with a new Presidential administration.  What does he think will be most impacted by Trump’s repeal and replace mantra? 

This podcast will help explain why Spinola is an expert in such high demand – and we are very pleased to partner with him to deliver more education on these and other topics in the near future.
