I don’t have to tell you that healthcare is in the midst of unprecedented changes that likely will reshape how care is delivered and paid for. Every facet of the industry and every provider is struggling with these changes, so you’re not alone.

Since hospital spending accounts for 32 cents of every healthcare dollar, most payment and care reform efforts are focused on that segment. As risk shifts to providers, hospitals are relying increasingly on post-acute providers such as home health. You recognize that home health is uniquely positioned to provide monitoring, rehabilitation and overall care beyond a hospital’s four walls, which can make for compelling partnerships.

Data and analytics are becoming increasingly relevant as hospitals look to reduce readmissions and seek to share clinical data with care partners to empower efficient care coordination. Clinical integration will be a key step in forming these partnerships.

Whether your organization is freestanding or part of a health system that incorporates home health software, we understand that these changes can be difficult to navigate successfully. Helping you prepare for the future is a key driver for McKesson Homecare™ and McKesson Hospice™.

Our home health software and services support home care organizations by:

  • Bringing data together at scale and using it in multiple ways
  • Uncovering insights that can lead to behavior change through effective analytics
  • Presenting insights within the clinical workflow
  • Facilitating the sharing of data with other providers
