Join us for Private Duty NOW. These dynamic, executive and editorial-led panels will discuss multiple topics for health plan professionals. 





Strategies and Solutions For the Private Duty Workforce Shortage


10:00 AM - 11:00 AM EDT


Private duty caregivers are currently in short supply and with the ongoing workforce shortage, agencies are struggling to meet the demand for services. In addition to high turnover, low wages and regulatory issues are also negatively impacting recruitment efforts.

Agencies are tasked with finding more efficient ways to utilize their staff as well as rebolstering their workforce. This roundtable will look at ways private duty agencies can strengthen employee engagement and utilize staff more efficiently.



How to Make Home Care Relevant and Modern


11:10 AM - 12:10 EDT


It’s time for the idea of teamwork and multidisciplinary care to extend from acute healthcare to home care. Older adults can better retain their independence and age in place if home care agencies take a teamwork approach.

This roundtable will look at how creating meaningful partnerships can help home care become more modern and relevant to today's consumers.




Home Care Payment Models: Challenges and Solutions


12:15 AM - 1:15 AM EDT



Despite the fact that caregivers handle a multitude of complex and intimate tasks for clients, their work is considered “unskilled” and their wages are low.

Advocates have urged policymakers to reevaluate payment structures and reimbursement rates for home care providers as well as caregivers, with providers themselves noting its potential to aid their staffing and retention challenges.

This roundtable will examine the pay scale for caregivers, recent efforts to have insurance providers pay for services, and how agencies can thrive economically in a turbulent environment.
