In today’s episode, we discuss the many challenges facing the pediatric home care field in their journey to advocate and care for medically fragile children. One innovative company that’s helping in this fight is Team Select Home Care. Today, we talk to the President and CEO of Team Select to get his thoughts.
In today’s episode, we discuss:
- Team Select’s unique approach to pediatric home care
- How COVID-19 has affected care for medically fragile children
- An innovative solution to a huge problem in pediatric home care
Below are some highlights from our conversation:
- 2:30 – What is Team Select’s unique approach?
- 4:30 – How has the pandemic affected home care?
- 6:40 – What happens to the children during nursing shortages?
- 11:45 – What’s the solution to the problem?
- 23:00 – Is Fred Johnson feeling good about the future of Team Select?
After today’s episode, I think, like me, you’ll have a new understanding of a population in the home care field that sometimes gets overlooked: medically fragile children. I also think you’ll walk away being much more aware of just how severely the COVID-19 pandemic has affected children who receive care at home and how companies like Team Select have been working to resolve those issues.
To learn more about how professionals like Fred Johnson and companies like Team Select are helping to address home care problems such as labor shortages and high costs that severely impact groups like medically fragile children, listen to my interview with Sara Wilson, CEO of Home Assist Health, Inc., a nonprofit based in Arizona that helps private pay and Medicaid clients pursue independent lifestyles from the comfort of home.
