There are other KLAS reports that are essential to understanding the home care landscape. The Post–Acute Care Perception 2013: High Hopes and Big Plans. details research findings on reimbursement issues that home care agencies are facing in 2014.
The home care industry is experiencing increased interest due to ACOs and the view that post–acute care is a critical component of improving health outcomes and reducing the total cost of care.
“For most health systems today, post–acute care seems like a mirage when it comes to the care continuum,” says KLAS report author Erik Bermudez. “They can see it in front of them as an important component of their go-forward strategy, but when the time comes to make post–acute care a reality within their continuum of care, it’s simply not ready. For most, there’s a lot of foundation yet to be laid.”
As part of this study, KLAS interviewedhospitals and post–acute care facilities across the country in an effort to fully understand their plans, challenges and technology decisions.
