Home Health Care News reporter, Patrick Filbin, included Lifespark in his latest article on companies focused on wellness, not more ‘sick care.’ Home-based companies are focusing on patient “wellness” more than they ever have he notes.
Wellness seems like it would be an obvious focus for health care services companies in general. But the fact of the matter is that it hasn’t always been in post-acute and long-term care settings.
That’s changing now. While it’s right for the patient, a focus on wellness can also drive revenue and boost outcomes in an increasingly value-based system.
“We keep paying for acute reactive sick care,” Lifespark CEO Joel Theisen told Home Health Care News. “We don’t have a health care system. We have a sick care system. You’ve heard people say that in the past and I’ve been saying it for 10 years. At a macro level, Lifespark is not pivoting at all. We’re here to help seniors age magnificently and we’re here to help them longitudinally and holistically for the rest of their lives.”
