HCPF Receives Recommendations From Training Advisory Committee

The Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing recently received the final report of a committee created by legislation to advise it on the training of Colorado home care workers. Among the members of the committee was Lorin Chevalier, a director of the newly combined Home Care & Hospice Association of Colorado. 

Among the 10 recommendations made, the committee advised that by July 1, HCPF and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, as needed, should "begin to collaborate to align existing and develop prospective Rules requiring agencies to provide state-required minimum training to employees, documenting such training in each employee’s record, and to be responsible for providing oversight for meeting minimum training requirements."

The final recommendations are viewable here.

Report: Private Equity Likely to Deploy $1.5 Trillion War Chest in Home-Based Care Market

Private equity players are sitting on more dry powder than ever before, entering 2020 with a reported $1.5 trillion in unspent capital. In all likelihood, a portion of this cash will go into the in-home care space, HomeHealthCareNews.com reports. 

In general, the health care sector has already seen an increase in private equity investment over the past few years. There were 299 health care deals involving private equity buyers or sellers in 2009; that number is expected to skyrocket to almost 750 for 2019 when all the deal data is in and analyzed, according to statistics from PricewaterhouseCoopers.
