In today’s episode, we talk to Jason Bring, a health care partner at Arnall Golden Gregory who cochairs the law firm’s National Post-Acute Care team and serves on the Board of the National Association for Home Care and Hospice. Bring also works with the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization on legislative issues in the industry. Through both his position at Arnall Golden Gregory and his personal involvement in the home health care field, Bring offers a lot of information about how legislation is impacting home health care.
In this episode we discuss:
- How Bring’s work affects home health care providers and consumers
- How current legislation is impacting the home health care field
- How legislation could potentially drive significant progress in home health care
Below are some highlights from our conversation:
- [1:40] Bring explains his role with Arnall Golden Gregory, the National Association for Home Care and Hospice, and the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization.
- [4:35] Do patients want to receive care at home and in their own communities?
- [6:23] Why haven’t we been focused on delivering care at home?
- [8:55] Is legislation pushing the industry toward care at home or in care facilities?
- [11:17] Discover how home health care can save money and who it can save money for.
- [12:45] As a lawyer, learn what perspective Bring tries to offer in his roles throughout the industry.
- [16:35] Learn what current legislation you should be on the lookout for in the news.
After listening to today’s episode, I think, like me, you’ll be a bit more well versed on just how important legislation is in the home health care field for everyone involved. You’ll see how consumer trends in home care can be boosted if the right legislation is behind them, pushing for a more innovative, well-rounded industry for the providers and the consumers.
To learn more about how things like legislation and policy can affect home health care from the top down, listen to my interview with David Totaro, Chief of Government Affairs for BAYADA Home Health Care, where he explains the policy decisions that impact home care.
