Posted on Monday, December 9, 2019 1:46 PM
According to a new study from Definitive Healthcare, many home health providers plan to diversify their specialty services within the next two years, except therapy-related services, which virtually no providers plan on expanding anytime soon.
The study garnered information from 159 home health agencies, with it consisting of roughly 70% agency-level providers and 30% corporation-type businesses. From the 159 respondents, 73% said they generally planned to either expand or launch specialized care offerings.
“Areas of specialized care are expanding pretty quickly,” Matt Valley, a senior health care analyst at Definitive Healthcare, told Home Health Care News. “[Home health agencies] have seemingly begun tailoring their care to specific disease states or conditions. And I think it’s very telling that over the next two years, nearly three-quarters of responding organizations were planning to either expand to additional disease states and conditions or begin offering specialized care as a specific service line at their organization.”
