Around the time other people are putting up holiday decorations, C-Suite executives across the country, if not the world, start thinking about their accomplishments and challenges from the past year and start planning how to build toward success in the next. Coming out of a nearly three-year pandemic, many of those executives found this past holiday/review/planning season to lean a tad more toward hope than celebration.
Knowing what is coming would help, but December/January predictions are predictably hit and miss, often "updated" by June. We spoke with one of those optimistic forecasters in early January. AlayaCare founding CEO Adrian Schauer has a vested interested in seeing the users of his software survive and thrive. Toward that end, he recently published a paper on the Top Trends in Home-based Care 2023, that agencies can learn from to thrive in 2023.
The full report can be found here. What follows is a summary of our conversation about with Mr. Schauer about his report.
"One reality that came to light in 2022 is that payers have no plans to help us take on additional staff to meet the surging demand for in-home care."
"Take this lesson into 2023 and focus on what you can control as you strive to provide excellent patient care with limited human resources."
"Look for three key themes to surface:
- more technology adoption to shore up operations, reduce overhead costs, and improve staff experience
- maximizing caregiver skills and career advancement opportunities though new training opportunities
- renewed efforts to identify new funding sources, featuring our role as a service in high demand
Schauer said there are things agency leaders can do to meet 2023's challenges.
We have two resources for further detail on Schauer's insights and recommendations. Read the complete white paper on the Home Care Tech: Rowan Report web site here. And watch our video conversation with him on the Home Care Tech YouTube page.
