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.
Josh Pickus, CEO of Optima Healthcare Solutions is the guest for this episode. Josh and Tripp discuss the state of the healthcare industry, particularly the post-acute care space in which Optima Healthcare Solutions is operating. Josh talks about Optima and their cloud-based technology solutions, as well as why they recently launched their Homecare-specific functionality to accompany their Rehabilitation and other post-acute care solutions.
We always ask our guests: So What, Who Cares? when it comes to their company or solution, and Josh's answer is pretty powerful.

Tim Rowan, the man behind the Home Care Technology Report. This interesting man - a "go-to" source on all things Home Care - opens up on the path that brought him to where he is today, and what lessons were hardest learned along the way.
This week's So What, Who Care? episode brings us Michael Blackstone, MD. Dr. Blackstone is CEO of SutureHealth, a well respected member of the Homecare and Physician Community, and an LSU fan.
Our discussion starts with how he left the business of practicing medicine to become an entrepreneur (see the article about him on our site: ); moves into how his featured product, SutureSign, is fitting an enormous need in the market; then we have a quick detour into the world of Homecare & Hospice Marketing; and then get his take on LSU's upcoming football season (whilst I lament the pending doom and despair as an Auburn Tiger).
Michael is polished and well spoken, whereas I seem to say 'dad gum' alot. Nevertheless, this is a great way to get to know a true up-and-comer in the Post-Acute and Physician Practice space.
