How Inflation is Affecting Home Healthcare and Transportation

Inflation has been a major topic in the news over the last few years, affecting virtually all industries and individuals, with workers’ comp being no exception.

Healthesystems’ VP of Program Performance and Analytics, Cliff James, recently contributed to the Healthesystems’ blog with a discussion of how inflation has impacted medical transportation and home health.

Across medical transportation, James examines the macro indicators of rising transportation costs, as well as shifting priorities for drivers, how car insurance premiums impact things, and more.

For home healthcare, James focuses on the rising demand for home healthcare workers in the face of an aging population and infectious disease concerns, how competition for home healthcare workers is growing, and updated strategies for connecting patients with home healthcare workers.
