Educating referral sources and payers on the benefits of home healthcare is an ongoing task. While there is broad awareness about home health generally, the industry is constantly evolving to meet the needs of clients, utilizing new technologies and techniques to deliver more specialized care in the home. For people like Joanne Cunningham, executive director of the Partnership for Quality Home Healthcare, this is an exciting time in the history of the industry.
In her role with the Partnership for Quality Home Healthcare, Cunningham works alongside government officials to ensure access to quality home healthcare services for all Americans. Representing community-and-hospital-based home healthcare agencies nationwide, the Partnership is dedicated to developing innovative reforms to improve the program integrity, quality, and efficiency of home healthcare for seniors throughout the nation.
