“I don’t know which referral sources to target” has become an all-too-common refrain among home health and hospice agencies. A lack of visibility into both the market and your own agency’s referral activity weakens your sales efforts and slows your market expansion. Many agencies are scrambling to develop a sales strategy that yields results. What’s the secret? Using relevant, actionable data to determine the best referral sources for your agency to target.
The competitive nature of post-acute healthcare has led to a rise in technology products hitting the market to better assist you with managing your customer relationships and growing your sales. This shift to a SaaS (Software as a Service) delivery model for CRM and sales platforms can leave your organization exposed for reputational damage and financial penalties if data is left unsecure and a security breach occurs. With the added complexity of safeguarding protected health information, it’s critical that you select a product that meets the security protocols your Information Security Officer requires in order to ensure HIPAA compliance and data security.

Increased regulation has HME providers looking for ways to do more with less, which means improving both the efficiency and productivity of their sales programs.

This year’s Heartland Conference will take place at the convention center, just a short distance from the corporate headquarters of VGM.

Each year, Hospice Works does a Forum that is usually clinical in nature.

We are just a few days away from the Minnesota Home Care Association’s Future of Home Care Conference and Technology Expo. The conference takes place at the Ramada Bloomington Hotel in Minneapolis on January 28th. This event is unique from most of the other conferences we will be attending this year, as it focuses solely on technology and emerging innovations in the home care space.
The much-anticipated HME News Business Summit is only a week away and will kick off on Sept. 13 – 15 at the Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt University. This is a great annual meeting that brings HME industry leaders together to discuss and strategize growth. While it offers important sessions discussing regulations, technology and the future of the industry, the conference organizers also do a great job of providing attendees with multiple opportunities for networking. This is truly a one-of-a-kind conference for attendees to learn from one another, share ideas and network, and in my experience, that has really become the main attraction for this event.
