2023 Homecare Trends

The 2023 conference season is well underway and the team at Generations Homecare System has had a wonderful time attending many of these conferences. Conferences are a great way to network with industry professionals and learn the latest trends in the industry. Here are the top themes of discussion we have noticed thus far: 

1. Documentation

With Protected Health Information (PHI) and private client and caregiver records to keep track of, it’s unsurprising that many homecare agencies are abandoning paper and pen in favor of homecare software built to help simplify documentation. Through the implementation of a secure, HIPAA-compliant solution such as Generations Homecare System, you can utilize client and caregiver management tools that allow for easy retrieval of records and Protected Health Information (PHI). 

2. Cybersecurity

Protecting sensitive client and caregiver information helps your agency stay HIPAA compliant. The best way to ensure data security and HIPAA compliance is through a technology solution like Generations Homecare System which utilizes data encryption.  

3. Recruiting and Retaining a Strong Workforce

A sure way to retain a strong workforce is through the technology provided to them. Easy-to-use, secure communication tools in Generations Homecare System are a great way to keep your caregivers satisfied. Market your agency not only to potential clients, but to caregivers by standing out as an exemplary employer through highlighting employee benefits, incentives you offer, and more.  

4. Electronic Visit Verification

Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) is beneficial for everyone; not just those under EVV requirements. EVV creates more accurate records for billing and payroll and gives a real-time global view of care activities. Become well-versed on EVV and help your homecare team get acclimated as well.
