How did you find your purpose and calling? What do you see as the major positive and negative dynamic forces for caregivers? How has the pandemic changed the post-acute care landscape? Where is Congress and the administration headed with the use of RPM and telehealth and making some of these tools impermanent? What should leaders pay attention to regarding Medicare? How are EMI plans growing? What is your point of view on community-based palliative care and the reimbursement models emerging out of it? How far are we from getting some sort of community-based palliative care programs in place?
