Description

With expansion, the home-care market is becoming more diverse and more competitive. For-profit agencies are multiplying. Nursing homes and hospital systems are moving beyond their institutional walls to provide an array of home- and community-based services. Managed care organizations are enrolling record numbers of individuals and families. They and other third-party payers are aggressively shopping among home-care providers, seeking better value for money. The articles that comprise this book, commissioned by the Milbank Memorial Fund and the Visiting Nurse Service of New York, address these issues.
Contributors.
