During the past five years, industry growth has been fostered by an aging US population, the prevalence of chronic disease, growing physician acceptance of home care, medical advancements and a movement toward cost-efficient treatment options from public and private payers. However, despite strong past growth, industry funding from government sources has come under intense pressure in recent years. In the next five years, Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement cuts will continue to seriously threaten the industry. Nevertheless, strong and steady revenue growth seems likely for the Home Care Providers industry in the next five years, as a result of an aging population and increasing interest in home healthcare.
Companies in this industry primarily provide services in the home. These services may be medical or nonmedical and include skilled-nursing care, personal care, homemaker and companion services, physical therapy and medical social services. This industry also includes in-home hospice care providers.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
