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.
A good conversation with a good guy about a great company.
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.
Tripp Matthews and Lisa McFann
In this "behind the scenes" episode of the podcast, Penny Lovitt of Ohen Consulting breaks down Tripp Matthews and Lisa McFann, co-founders of Curaport, using the Hartman Value Profile.
This profile analyzes the judgement capacity of individuals (to be brief), and after completing the profile - Tripp and Lisa are analyzed by Penny on what their strengths are, how they should work well together, and what they can do to get more out of each other and their company.
In this episode, we introduce Carleen Rogers of Medalogix. Carleen is a caring and earnest person who has spent most of her healthcare career in the Hospice world, and now provides education and consulting. Her passion for hospice comes through as she tells the story of her journey to Hospice care, and shares what Medalogix is doing to help further reduce the stigma of hospice in this country.
Michael Markowitz of TC Services USA joins the podcast in a truly educational episode. He discusses how his company helps agencies take full advantage of the Work Opportunity Tax Credit (referred to commonly as WOTC). This incentive pays an employer $2400 per new employee hired - as long as the new employee meets certain criteria. Within the post-acute healthcare industry, Michael figures less than 10% of employers are taking advantage of this credit. We try to figure out why more companies are not doing this, and he has some good insights as to why. He also lays out the internal machinations of how the red tape works, and how his company helps take the scissors to that.
This is a very straightforward topic and something can impact you and your organization today.
