The National Association for Home Care & Hospice Announces the Completion of The BlackBerry Report - a Comprehensive Study on Technology and Home Care
Date:10/14/2009

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) today announced the completion of The BlackBerry® Report: The National State of the Home Care Industry Study. The study, conducted to provide insights into essential advances and reforms in the delivery of home health care services, is intended to help providers of these crucial services prepare for pending overall health care reform.

The study, the largest of its kind, is designed to drive best practices that can be shared for the benefit of the whole industry. The study demonstrates the collaboration within the home care industry to prepare for proposed reimbursement cuts, and to retool to use technology and data to improve quality and patient care.

"Health care reform is already happening in home care," said Val Halamandaris, President of NAHC. "Home care has been an innovation leader in health care services. With the use of modern technologies, patient-centered outcome measures, and evidence-based best practices, home care is uniquely positioned to effectively meet the needs of a growing senior population. With the viability of home care as an effective solution for the unsustainable growth in costs of health care, this important study will help drive the promises of the home care solution into a reality."

Marcia Reissig, chairperson of study cosponsor Hospital Home Care Association of America (HHCAA), noted that, "The study was intended to identify best practices in home care to allow all home health care providers to realize efficiencies and quality of care to the nation's most vulnerable seniors." She committed to "share the data and insights with all of home care to jump start health care reform at the direct service level."

The study was sponsored by Research In Motion (RIM), developers of the BlackBerry wireless solution, and co-sponsored by NAHC and its affiliate, the Hospital Home Care Associatio
