The future is coming


It sounds obvious, and it is. The future is coming.

But while it sounds obvious, the future is not simple to predict and it’s certainly not easy to navigate. And yet, it’s coming, always coming.

The future is what buzzes in the back of my mind when I look at the slate of sessions for this year’s HME News Business Summit.

The future is a panel of “disrupters” who are redefining what they do, and in the process, redefining the HME industry.

It’s an approach to sleep therapy that emphasizes smart machines and apps that better connect healthcare providers and patients and increase data collection, and as a result, improve adherence.

It’s an HME industry where providers are valued for all that they do, not what payers think they do.

The future is a payment model that’s long-sighted not short-sighted, one that supports technology that allows seniors to stay in their homes safely.

The future is unknown, of course, but what you’ll learn during these and other sessions at this year’s HME News Business Summit is that the future is something you should always be speculating about. It’s something that should empower you to explore different avenues, to take risks.

Because the future is coming, and we want you want to be ready.

See you in Nashville.
