Project Experience

Successful Home Care and Hospice organizations have been defined as those that consistently produce positive patient outcomes and satisfaction using technologically advanced techniques, have increased market share and the ability to promptly respond to market changes and pressures, maintain caregiver resource levels, community image, and have a healthy financial performance that makes a very positive, true operational profit. (For those entities that are affiliated with or are departments within a health system, it also includes their identification as a core service of the health system that makes a true operational margin contribution.)

Telehealth Marketing and Implementation

Health Care businesses must be current with cutting edge technologies to achieve success but to sustain success they must know their customers well and be able to deliver services that have value to the customer. Marketing those services is dependent upon relationships. It is often challenging to quantify the value of a service.
