Director of Home Health

The home care industry is facing many new government regulations resulting in significant changes for agencies large and small. With these rapid changes, ways to achieve home health compliance to satisfy improved QAPI demands and greater patient satisfaction standards have become essential to keeping agencies financially stable. We have seen the impact on quality of care and outcomes as agencies work to meet these challenges. The key to thriving in this challenging environment is the ability to respond and adapt to these changes quickly and positively. By partnering with Qualidigm Home Care and Hospice consultants, you can do just that.
