General Session

Six Factors Forging the Future of Home Care and Hospice
The silver lining to 2020 is that COVID was an overall positive for home care. Now the question is, can home care turn this momentum to its advantage. Can we keep capturing SNF volume at home? Are we prepared to deliver high-acuity care in the community? And is our value proposition resonating with MA plans? We'll address these critical questions, including the partnerships, payment models and personnel needed in a post-pandemic environment.
