From the HCAF Conference, agencies are additing private duty to their service portfolio to capture clients in the beginning of the health delivery continuum. Consumers and referral sources prefer to work with health care providers than can offer total care, including Home Health, Hospice, and Private Duty. Matthew Capell of FHS Seniorcare Payment Solutions educates on understanding how the models of Home Health and Private Duty differ and the enormous Private Duty opportunity for HHAs.
Barrett Daniels, my friend and CEO of NextStep Advisor, checks in and talks about the convergence of Healthcare, Wall Street and the IPO world.
We talk about why there are not more 'prominent' Healthcare IPO's and stocks with sex appeal, what makes a healthcare company ready for an IPO, we take a brief foray into politics as it relates to healthcare, and discuss reverse mergers (I was really lost at this point).
We even somehome manage to talk about the cinematic classic Grease 2.

Tripp Matthews and Nick Seabrook of BlackTree Healthcare Consulting discuss March Madness, Healthcare Reform, Value Based Purchasing, and try to sound intelligent about the Affordable Care Act and what TrumpCare would look like.
In case you haven’t heard there are NINE states mandated to participate in the Value Based Purchasing Model program including: Arizona, Florida, Iowa, Massachusetts, Maryland, North Carolina, Nebraska, Tennessee and Washington. If your agency is in one of these states you MUST register a point of contact person with the Enterprise Identity Management (EIDM) system.
