  • Slides, Video From IOM/NRC Workshop on Future of Home Health Now Available

    Presentation slides and videos from an innovative Institute on Medicine (IOM) and National Research Council (NRC) workshop on the future of home health care are now available for download at the IOM website. APTA was among the sponsors of the 2-day event.

    The workshop, held September 30 through October 1, brought together leaders in health care, academia, and the federal government to talk about the present and future of home health care, with particular emphasis on how data can inform and improve outcomes. Highlights of the workshop were featured in US News & World Report.

    The workshop touched on issues that affect the entire home health system, including innovation, the role of social support, silos in postacute care settings, customized technologies, and the creation of a standard definition that combines skilled, unskilled, and caregiver services. Cindy Krafft, PT, COS-C, president of APTA's Home Health Section, participated in the workshop along with APTA staff.

    The Alliance for Home Health Quality and Innovation will hold a follow-up symposium on January 13 in Washington, DC. Registration information will be posted on the Future of Home Health website.
