HME Business Summit

The post-acute buzz

The shift from relationship marketing to service marketing

It’s a little too early to go into too much detail, but a big focus at this year’s HME News Business Summit, Sept. 7-9 at The Marquette Hotel in Minneapolis, will be post-acute care.

Not home medical equipment, but post-acute care.

See—miracles do happen


We had a great response to a webcast on how to snag private-pay contracts on July 25—a real testament to how many HME providers out there are trying to diversify their businesses away from traditional Medicare.

The Business Summit Sessions


I wrote a wrap-up of the HME News Business Summit (see page 11), but there’s still more I want to share.

It was that kind of event.

'This is your time:' Summit recharges providers


PITTSBURGH – Several speakers at the HME News Business Summit had the same take-home message for providers: “This is your time.”

Speakers give best business advice


Editor’s note: I sent an email to the speakers of this year’s HME News Business Summit asking them for their “best business advice.”  I thought it would be a good way to not only promote the Summit, but also put a face on this year’s excellent crop of speakers.

You wont be disappointed


The learning experience is second to none. If you're an owner or manager of an HME company, this education event is for you. Well present a look forward with fact-based presentations and real industry thought leaders to help you prepare your business for the future. For instance, you'll hear from a physician who's a nationally recognized advocate for care in the home. There'll be tips and insights from competitive bidding participants. Well reveal and interpret our most recent Financial Benchmark Survey data. You'll hear about what you're missing by not doing social media and then well give you tips on how to make it work in your company. And theres much more, including a session about reducing hospital re-admissions and a panel of leading M&A specialists who can help answer the question, should I buy or should I sell?
