Wyatt Matas & Associates Releases White Paper on Future Home Healthcare Business Model

White paper discusses the current and future challenges and opportunities in home healthcare, with a particular focus on the segregation of the industry into agencies that are developing into chronic care disease management companies and those that are not.

Washington, DC (PRWEB) May 5, 2010 -- Wyatt Matas & Associates has released its latest white paper entitled, “The Delineation of Home Healthcare: The Evolution of a Healthy Industry.” The whitepaper discusses the opportunity for home healthcare to become the center of chronic care disease management and identifies a particular business model that some more advanced companies are implementing. The whitepaper also discusses the segregation of those agencies that are moving towards becoming chronic care disease management companies and those that are being left behind to chase lower margin business. Finally, the whitepaper discusses several action steps the industry must consider to move home healthcare up the continuum of care ladder.

Managing Partner of Wyatt Matas & Associates, Chip Measells, said of the white paper’s development, “As we looked across the health care continuum, home healthcare seems to be clearly in the best position to provide chronic care disease management in the most successful way possible, in the home. However, the industry is challenged by fragmentation, little to no sustainable lobbying efforts and a challenging reimbursement environment. For home healthcare to evolve into the center of chronic care disease management, the industry will have to speak with one voice.”

Mr. Measells went own to add, “Despite these challenges, we believe home healthcare and hospice companies have a window of tremendous opportunity to scale their businesses by either organic growth or by taking advantage of a market valuation equilibrium that is occurring between buyers and sellers. We have also seen debt and equity finally return and come available to the industry, which is allowing for a more favorable merger and acquisition environment.”
