August 27, 2014Liz Beaulieu, Editor

There are three excellent panel discussions at the HME News Business Summit this year (It's Sept. 7-9 at The Marquette Hotel, so there's still time to register!). I touched on these panels in a previous blog. But I wanted to give you a better idea of where we're headed with the panels on partnerships and strategic planning. Where does HME fit in? For the panel on partnerships, we'll have four HME providers talking about how they've been able to further embed themselves in the continuum of care. They're...

July 17, 2014Liz Beaulieu, Editor

I've had great conference calls this week with the moderators and panelists for the three panel discussions at this year's HME News Business Summit. (Shameless plug: It's less than two months away, by the way, so register today!) The topics of the panel discussions are partnership opportunities among healthcare providers, strategic planning and outside investment in HME. I get really amped up for the Summit after these calls. Hearing the panelists chime in on what they plan to talk about during the...

March 28, 2014Liz Beaulieu, Editor

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 in Minneapolis, will be post-acute care. Not HME, but post-acute care. There will be a number of sessions that will have something to do with this growing movement of post-acute providers banding together and with acute care providers for survival (if you think HME is the only healthcare segment that's hurting, you're wrong) and success (not only financially, but also from an outcomes...

There's just so much doom and gloom in the HME industry these days (competitive bidding, audits, face-to-face requirement, etc.) that I get really revved up when I read stories that Theresa and Elizabeth have written that feature providers that are doing smart things. (That, or I could still be on a high from the Boston Red Sox winning the World Series!) There are at least two of these stories in the forthcoming December issue. Avid readers of our HME Newswire on Monday got a sneak of one of those...
