There are 33,000 home medical care companies in America. Of all the employees in those health care companies, only 150 people were selected to participate in the 2011 National Strategic Planning Congress for Homecare and Hospice held recently in California. One of those 150 people was Vivian Terry, RN BSN BC/Regional Clinical Manager of Quality Home Health.
Because of all the problems facing Medicare, TennCare, and private insurance, many people believe that this year could be the most important year in the lives of Americans when it comes to healthcare. The purpose of this group of 150 is to find ways to achieve what the National Association for Homecare and Hospice views as the problem-helping lawmakers continually understand that home is where people heal best.
“Vivian was the perfect choice”, said Thom Mills, Administrator of Quality Home Health. “For years she has been inviting Congressmen and Senators to go with her into the homes of our patients so lawmakers can see, first-hand, how much more cost effective and less lonely it is when you’re allowed to recuperate at home,” he said.
“We’re very proud of Vivian Terry,” said Mills. “We anticipate highly effective programs coming from this group,” he said.
Established in 1984 in Jamestown, Tennessee, Quality Home Health is one of the oldest, most well known home health care companies in the State, serving 16 counties from 11 offices in Middle and East Tennessee. For more information: www.qualityhomehealth.com
