ALTOONA, PA  – Delta Health Technologies®, the post-acute care industry’s most experienced vendor focused on clinical point-of-care, billing and home health operations solutions, released a ‘A Guide to the Growing LTPAC Market’ infographic today.

Home health is poised to be the care setting of choice as it’s more affordable and delivers more positive patient outcomes. Care-at-home providers need to capture this healthcare sector growth with business service line expansion, connection with other healthcare providers, while proving the value they bring to the population.

“We think this concise and informative infographic is a helpful tool to allow care-at-home providers to visualize how they can grow their business and have the quantitative data needed to change their business model to be more successful.” stated Keith Crownover, President and CEO of Delta Health Technologies. “We recognize that patients want to remain in the comfort of their own home with familiar surroundings.

According to the Pew Research Center, around 10,000 baby boomers turn 65 every day and by 2030, 18% of the nation will have reached at least that age. This report estimates that by 2050, 27 million people will need some form of paid care service, doubling from 13 million in 2000.

LTPAC services cover a wide range of conditions and more complex, chronic care needs that result in frequent transitions for patients between their homes as well as acute, post-acute and long-term care settings. The range of LTPAC providers and care settings with frequent movement of patients amongst them necessitates the exchange of relevant and accurate care documentation. Coordination of care is essential as is the need for systems to support the capturing, use and exchange of patient information.
