Three technologies that are changing the landscape of home health organizations in 2021

This blog first appeared in McKnight's Senior Living.

When we think about 2020, healthcare inevitably comes up. While organizations continue on their mission to manage the pandemic, it’s also time for them to begin thinking about future-proofing themselves to create a more robust system of delivery. This holds especially true for home health organizations that need to actively reorganize themselves for better patient outcomes. But where does this future-proofing journey begin?

Healthcare beyond the four walls of the hospital    

Take a moment to assess the scale of the home health industry. In 2019, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that there were 11,844 home health agencies in the U.S. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that people in the age bracket of 65 will grow from 43 million in 2012 to over 85 million in 2050. With this growth in the old age population, the demand for home health services is expected to grow as well. By 2025, this market is poised to reach $147.45 billion.

In order to keep up with the magnitude of this growth, there are four key areas that home-based healthcare needs to focus on. Much like healthcare as a whole, home health organizations also need to align themselves largely to the quadruple aim, which refers to better patient experiences, improved care outcomes, lower cost of care and better staff experiences.

There are several technological solutions that cater to the home health market. While organizations have myriad options, here are three technologies that are increasingly gaining adoption in post-acute care and, more specifically, among home health teams.
