Tripp Matthews, Tracey Moorhead
Tracey Moorhead, President & CEO of Elevating Home, joined me for a conversation about Elevating Home, the new national advocacy organization for Home & Community Based Services. This is a very informative discussion about how Elevating Home was formed, WHY it was formed, and what they are going to do in order achieve their mission of making Patient-Centered Care in the Home a fundamental pillar of our national healthcare structure.
We do learn more about Tracey, and how she got to where she is today, and what the plans are for this group now and in the future.
It is an ambitious and great thing Tracey and her group aim to do.

Tripp Matthews, Aaron Little, Raymond Belles
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.
Tripp Matthews, Michael McGowan
In an episode that defines the name of the podcast, Michael McGowan of Operacare is our guest this week. We learn about how Michael went from field nurse to OASIS expert, and how his new company, Operacare, is starting to take the industry by storm.
Michael shares his insights on how Regulators look at clinicial documentation versus how Providers view it, and then really discusses one of the root causes of the maelstrom of change in Home Health Care.
A fascinating and informational conversation to say the least.
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.
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.
Tripp Matthews, Brad Evanovich, Eric Scharber, Nick Seabrook
This final episode of 2016 is a look back on the previous year. Nick Seabrook, Brad Evanovich, and Eric Scharber - very much part of the A-team - are back and waxing philosophic about the past year and the lessons learned.
We also take a look ahead to 2017 and make some predictions about what is to come.
