Home Health Providers Likely to Play ‘Very Important Role’ in Direct Contracting

“[Home health agencies] have the logistics expertise in moving clinicians through the community in a timely way, collecting key information and feeding it back to the care team in appropriate fashion,” Barret continued. “And [direct contracting] is a tremendous opportunity for the home health industry to play a very important role as the evolution of this new care design model comes to us.”
