Thursday, January 5, 2017

WASHINGTON – AAHomecare has formed a Hi Tech Work Group to explore new technology and payment models. The group, chaired by Maura Toole, director of field marketing for Philips Healthcare, will focus on how the industry can bring new technology to the market, promote operational efficiencies and make sure providers are paid appropriately for these technologies. The work group’s initial focus will be on examining new and emerging technologies that can deliver measurable benefits for both HME patients and payers, such as reduced readmissions, and strategizing how to get payer to consider increased reimbursements or new payment models that take these improved outcomes into account.
