WinterGreen Research announces the following study: Homecare Information Systems Markets, Worldwide, Market Shares, Strategies, and Forecasts, 2010-2016 Homecare is more cost efficient than nursing home or hospital care, every patient would rather stay at home if possible. As new homecare agencies proliferate in the U.S. and worldwide, one-third of homecare agencies in U.S. markets have closed or been acquired in the past five years due to the economic downturn and lack of profitability.Information systems are a significant part of the home care delivery systems. Software leverages the efficiency of clinical process in ways that have never become possible before. The system leverages virtually all the administrative and financial information needed to run a successful home care company. Information can be gathered right from the charts.
