ORASI© Press Release 2012 ORASI© Summary Report
With the recent decision handed down by the Supreme Court regarding the constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the probability has increased substantially that healthcare providers will have to implement significant changes in the way they do business. To assist providers of home healthcare and hospice in determining their organizational readiness for Healthcare Reform, the Council of State Home Care Associations commissioned the adaptation of an organizational readiness self-assessment survey developed by Artower Advisory Services for use by member agencies.
Over 940 participants from member agencies of 26 state associations took part in the survey during the period April 3, 2012 through July 3, 2012. The primary purpose of this effort was to help those agencies and the state associations to which they belong better understand the areas where attention, focus and training are necessary to help prepare home healthcare and hospice agencies be successful under Healthcare Reform.
