Navigating a Global Pandemic

By |2020-06-30T18:39:54-04:00June 29th, 2020|COVID-19, July-August 2020, Remington Report|

The reauthorization of the Older Americans Act (OAA) was perfect timing when COVID-19 reared its ugly head. Last March, President Trump signed a bipartisan reauthorization of a landmark law that provides more money for programs that help millions of older Americans age in their homes and communities through services including Meals on Wheels, family caregiver support, and transportation.

As hospitals discharge patients into their homes or other residential settings to free-up resources and hospital beds, the resultant strain on the provision of DME items and services, particularly for suppliers of home oxygen and ventilators, will significantly increase.

COVID 19 and Beyond: The Role of the Respiratory Therapist in Post-Acute and Home Care

By |2020-06-19T20:10:08-04:00April 28th, 2020|COVID-19, May-June 2020, Remington Report|

COVID-19 quickly identifies gaps in the health care delivery system. In the acute care hospital, the Respiratory Therapists (RT) is a well-respected team leader in respiratory care. Yet as soon as that patient is discharged, they suddenly lose that supportive RT expertise. RTs are underutilized in the post-acute setting because there currently is no payment mechanism to recognize essential RT services. As patients move into the home, this becomes front and center especially under COVID-19.

But providers must ensure that they are doing it right in order to avoid a day of legal reckoning that could threaten their businesses in the future.
