Several weeks ago, we launched a survey to determine the post-acute growth strategies that owners, operators, and managers would be focused on in the new year. Given the impacts COVID-19 has had on the post-acute industry, it was clear to us here at Trella that traditional, linear growth wasn’t going to be the focus for every organization or line of business. Instead, post-acute ACO (or DCE) partnerships will also be a top priority.
We had over 150 respondents from various roles and post-acute care organizations (PACs). Our full report will be published at the beginning of December 2021, but there were some interesting facts that arose during our initial analysis – most notably, the increasing emphasis on participating in value-based care models as a growth strategy. And that’s exactly what we’re going to focus on today – how has value-based care impacted post-acute care planning and growth?
