In this fourth episode of the Homecare & Technology Podcast Series, Tripp Matthews of Curaport and Danielle Pierotti of Elevating HOME are joined by Wanda Coley, COO of Well Care Home Health, and Michael McGowan, Founder and President of OperaCare, LLC. This episode is about Data in the Homecare space. A big, and important word and topic in all of healthcare today, we discuss the quality of the information and data that is most utilized to run Homecare organizations. Also, an interesting question on are we looking at the right data when managing our agencies both now and for the future.
Again, this discussion turned to ensuring the data that is collected through technology is done correctly by the humans providing the care and documenting that care.
This is a great series, and we are happy to have you on this journey with us!

In April of this year, a two-year project came to fruition with the formation of a new National advocacy organization for the Home Health Care arena: Elevating Home. This article is an editorial perspective on this group, as well as an interview with the President & CEO of Elevating Home, Tracey Moorhead.
Aaron Little and Raymond Belles of BKD sat down with me at the NHPCO conference in Washington recently to discuss the recent happenings in the Home & Community Based Services arena.
We discuss the "pause" in the Pre-Claim Review initiative (which is a somewhat controversial part of this discussion) as well as the delay in the implementation of the new Conditions of Participation for Home Health. Raymond also discusses some of the new Alternate Payment Models that are emerging for Homecare - and what that means moving forward.
