Episode 23: Nick Seabrook on Homecare 100 and HIMSS

  3/8/2017

  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.

Episode 22: Angelo Spinola - Healthcare Legal Expert

  2/2/2017

  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.

  12/20/2016

  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.

  Tripp Matthews, Matt Hughes

About a month after the National Association of Home Care's Annual Conference, Matt Hughes of ACHC joins the podcast.  We discuss the experience at NAHC, as well as delve into the services that ACHC offers to the Home Care industry.

Episode 19: Josh Pickus of Optima Healthcare Solutions

  Tripp Matthews, Josh Pickus

Josh Pickus, CEO of Optima Healthcare Solutions is the guest for this episode.  Josh and Tripp discuss the state of the healthcare industry, particularly the post-acute care space in which Optima Healthcare Solutions is operating.  Josh talks about Optima and their cloud-based technology solutions, as well as why they recently launched their Homecare-specific functionality to accompany their Rehabilitation and other post-acute care solutions.

We always ask our guests:  So What, Who Cares? when it comes to their company or solution, and Josh's answer is pretty powerful.
