Tripp Matthews, Danielle Pierotti, Amy Driscoll, Jarrett Bauer
In this episode of the Homecare & Technology Podcast Series produced in conjunction with Elevating HOME, Tripp Matthews of Curaport and Danielle Pierotti of Elevating HOME are joined by Amy Driscoll, Manager of Quality and Education for Aurora at Home, and Jarret Bauer, Founder & CEO of Health Recovery Solutions. The third episode is about Financial Impact of Technology in the Homecare psace. We discuss the direct and indirect costs of implementing Technology, and as importantly, the cost of NOT fully utilizing the Technologies available to Homecare providers.
As has been a common thread in this series of discussion, one of the critical factors in improving your financial outlook through the usage of Technology is the human component in adapting to and embracing the technologies available. Also how the Culture Change within Homecare companies can be the biggest “cost.”
Tripp Matthews, Danielle Pierotti, Ryan Cavanaugh, Teresa Craig
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.
Tripp Matthews, Danielle Pierotti, Mike Wons, Tracey Moorhead
In this special mini-series of podcasts, the folks of ElevatingHOME have joined forces with Curaport to delve into the world of Homecare and its usage of Technology. There will be several episodes through the month of August.
In this initial episode, Tripp Matthews of Curaport and Danielle Pierotti of Elevating HOME are joined by Mike Wons, CTO of the State of Illinois, and Tracey Moorhead, CEO of ElevatingHOME. The first episode is fundamentally an overview of where the Homecare industry is relative to its use of Technology. Much of the conversation is around why aren't more Homecare agencies utilizing Technology to its fullest, and how that can change.
Also, some obstacles to this utilization is discussed, as well as why there is so much optimism about this trend changing in the months and years to come.
This is a great series, and we are happy to have you on this journey with us!
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.
