2013 National State of the Industry Study – Phase Two Registration Opens

By April 8, 2013News

As interviews of industry leaders continue, NAHC urges its members who have yet done so to sign-up. Please register and take part in this important national study. The State of the Industry Study will address current practices and future strategies in the areas of IS/EHR, telehealth, new health care models and operations.

The interview will last less than twenty minutes. Participating agencies will be among the first to receive in-depth reports plus strategic recommendations from the findings. The results will also include insights into what practices the top agency, those with the best financial and quality outcomes, are using and planning.

Researchers at Fazzi Associates, the firm responsible for managing the study and reports, estimate that 1,000 industry leaders will be interviewed. If you did not register during the pre-study period, you have an opportunity to do so now.

The Study is sponsored by NAHC, CHAP, The Joint Commission, the Forum of State Associations, Delta Health Technologies, HealthWyse and Fazzi Associates. Results are expected to be released in late May or early June of this year. A major presentation on findings will be presented at NAHC’s Annual Meeting & Exposition, October 31 – November 3, 2013 in Washington, DC.

To participate in the study interviews, your agency must meet the following three criteria:
• Medicare certified
• Medicare revenues of $500,000 or higher
• Home Health Compare scores for two or more reporting periods
