How to Capitalize on Home Health Market

Aging population and financially burdened healthcare system to drive market.


CE Pro Editors · February 21, 2011

The nation’s ability to rein in future healthcare costs, which hospital executives fear could reach unsustainable levels within a decade, may depend in part on emerging technologies that are taking patient engagement to a higher level, especially in the home.

The population is aging and it’s far cheaper and more comfortable to let seniors age at home rather than move to an institution or extended care facility. To prepare CE pros for the onslaught of this new business opportunity, Home Health Tech education will be offered as part of the all-inclusive training at EHX: The CE Pro Event, March 17-19, 2011, in Orlando, Florida.

“The home healthcare market is set to explode,” says Julie Jacobson, editor-at-large,  CE Pro. “We’ve hailed the coming of home health technology for several years now, but we really believe CE pros will embrace the market in 2011 and beyond. That’s when we reach a critical point in terms of the aging population, financially burdened healthcare system, and emergence of exciting technologies for seniors and their caretakers.”

The following sessions will be held at EHX:
