In case you missed it, November is National Home Care and Hospice Month, which has us feeling extra grateful to be a part of our compassionate community of homecare professionals. To recognize you for the important work you do in helping to eliminate social isolation and food insecurity among seniors in our communities, we've made a donation to Feeding America on behalf of homecare professionals across the United States.

Learn how Generations helps agencies worldwide improve an individual's health outcomes using state-of-the-art visualization tools.
Lastly, Decision Health's Private Duty National Conference is just around the corner. We look forward to it every year, as the organizers always line up a terrific assortment of educational sessions.

New Tool: Earn More Referrals
Speak the language of your referral sources
What are your referral sources looking for? Clear and concise data that tells a story about your agency. One story that speaks volumes centers around hospital readmission rates following homecare. Generations clients now have access to sophisticated hospitalization and ER visit reports and much more thanks to a new tracking and reporting feature launched just last month.
Hospitals that can demonstrate fewer subsequent readmissions receive more Medicare reimbursement dollars from CMS. As a result, hospitals prioritize partnerships with providers that can demonstrate low readmissions. Generations simplifies documentation and provides the tools agencies need to prove positive health outcomes.
We have included more details on this new reporting functionality in our latest blog post. Click here to read.
We saw a big win late last month with the bi-partisan passage of the Dignity in Aging Act of 2019.
"The Dignity in Aging Act authorizes robust funding increases...which will help expand access to food assistance, transportation, and other basic services that a growing population of seniors need to live independently and with dignity. [Program funding will see] a 35 percent total increase in program funding over the five-year reauthorization period." --Fact Sheet, House Committee on Education & Labor
