Patrick Pilch, CBS’89, is quoted in Home Health Care News regarding Home Health as a Top Investment Target of Health care provider organizations. Patrick recently co-authored a report “Candid Conversations on Elder Care which revealed as the healthcare system pushes toward value-based care over traditional fee-for-service models, 44% of healthcare organizations surveyed said they’d invest most in home health care.
Providers face new pressure from the government to curb overall health care costs, but especially in senior care—with cuts to Medicare and Medicaid and greater pushes toward Medicare Advantage happening,” Patrick Pilch, managing director and national leader at BDO and an author of the report, told HHCN.
Pilch also echoed his colleague and co-author Shill, noting that seniors increasingly want to maximize their quality of life and specifically live in their own homes.
“Home health models solve both problems: They help providers improve health outcomes and reduce hospital spending, and they empower seniors to remain in their homes for longer,” Pilch said.
