Favorable Coverage and Investment by Private Equity Companies drives the Global Home Healthcare Services Market

In key markets such as the U.S., Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance) and/or Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) cover eligible home health services as long as patients are homebound and need part-time or intermittent skilled services. Generally, a home health care agency coordinates the services ordered by doctor or allowed practitioner for the patient. The home health agency caring for the patient must be Medicare-certified.

Some of the covered home health services include: Medically necessary part-time or intermittent skilled nursing care, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech-language pathology services, medical social services, part-time or intermittent home health aide care, injectable osteoporosis drugs for women, durable medical equipment, medical supplies for use at home.

Also, in the calendar year (CY) 2023, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) estimates that Medicare payments to home health agencies (HHAs) are likely to increase in the aggregate by 0.7% as compared to CY 2022.

Citing the lucrative prospects of the home healthcare services market, several private equity companies have started to invest in the global market.

The Growing Role of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Home Healthcare Services

In recent years, the application of AI in home healthcare has triggered a paradigm shift related to how patients and healthcare caregivers approach and deliver healthcare to patients. AI-based sensors track a patient’s health biometrics 24/7. Any irregularities in readings can immediately trigger alerts to the relevant caregiver or agency. AI-based mobile applications also help in providing preventive care by monitoring and managing medical conditions such as obesity, diabetes, cardiac problems, etc., maintaining diet and nutrition records, sending reports, and issuing alerts to concerned caregivers/physicians in case of deviations. AI-based AI voice assistants can also assist in setting up reminders for taking medicines, checking vital signs parameters, booking appointments, etc.

“……The prominence of AI in the home healthcare services market is expected to grow manifolds in the coming years……AI has the potential to manage complex care plans, streamline operations of home care agencies by optimizing the scheduling and routing of caregivers, and help in data-driven decision-making..”-Director, Home Healthcare Service Provider, U.S.A
