Michigan-based Great Lakes Caring, Connecticut-based National Home Health Care and Texas-based Jordan Health Services were - not too long ago - three separate home-based care providers. Backed by Blue Wolf Capital Partners and Kelso & Company, they came together in a three-way mega-merger in May 2018, officially rebranding under the Elara Caring name in July.
G. Scott Herman serves as CEO of Elara Caring - now one of the largest home health providers in the country, serving more than 65,000 patients and their families daily with services that span the continuum of personal care, skilled home health and hospice care.
Using predictive analytics to enable longitudinal care will be one of the keys for Elara Caring moving forward, as will its behavioral health offerings.
HHCN caught up with Herman to hear about his plans for the company moving forward, including his take on preparing for the Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM).
