Home Health Recognized for Low Costs and Value

Posted by Rachel Alden on Oct 3, 2014 9:38:54 AM


This week, U.S. News published an article by Kimberly Leonard entitled "Is Home Health a Solution to Rising Health Costs?"  Spoiler alert: Yes.

Leonard wrote, "For participants at a workshop held Tuesday by the Institute of Medicine and the National Research Council the answer was clear: Home health for seniors and people with disabilities can not only rein in costs, but can give people better health outcomes and the kind of care they want."

The article shares research about Americans' preferences to stay in their home, cost comparisons from home care to a skilled nursing facility and home health's impact on Medicare spending.

Check out the article and let us know what you think.
