Home Healthcare

Home healthcare organizations face unique challenges by providing patient care in uncontrolled environments.

Home healthcare organizations face the unique challenges of providing patient care in an uncontrolled environment. This dual element of uncertainty compounds the risk and insurance needs of this mission-driven community. Healthcare expertise alone is insufficient in understanding what makes home health risks different.

The Willis Towers Watson Healthcare Practice can help you meet the predicament of balancing patient care and employee safety while addressing the unique risks of caring for patients outside of an acute care setting.

Some of the unique challenges facing home healthcare organizations today:

  • Employee safety
  • Automobile risks, including hired and non-owned
  • Regulatory compliance
  • Having access to appropriate supplies and equipment
  • Attracting and retaining quality staff
  • Reimbursement reform
  • Higher acuity patients
  • Increased M&A activity
