In this episode, Tripp Matthews of Curaport and Danielle Pierotti of Elevating HOME are joined by Ryan Cavanaugh, CIO of Fusion Healthcare, and Teresa Craig, VP of Client Strategy at Netsmart Technologies.  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.
