Key Barriers Could Limit Adoption of Home-Based Care Models

March 18, 2022

COVID-19 provided the post-acute care industry the opportunity to shake the healthcare market by turning the world’s attention to the home-based care model.

  • Uncertain regulatory environment post-COVID-19
  • Overly restrictive requirements for the hospital at home programs 
  • Significantly variability in requirements for providers across state lines
