Industry leaders support policy changes to designate home as a clinical site of care

BRENTWOOD, Tenn. – Compassus, a national provider of home-based post-acute care services, has joined Moving Health Home, a coalition of stakeholders that supports changes in federal and state policy to enable the home to be a clinical site of care. Compassus provides home health, infusion, palliative and hospice care through a network of community-based programs with 200 locations in 30 states across the U.S.

“The goals of Moving Health Home align with how Compassus is innovating home-based care delivery and transforming the future of health care,” said Compassus CEO Jim Deal. “We know receiving care at home is the preference of most patients, results in higher quality and patient and family satisfaction, and lowers overall cost. Compassus is well positioned to continue expanding access to home-based care, and we look forward to working with other coalition members to shape federal and state policy related to care at home.”

As part of the Moving Health Home coalition, Compassus and other members will advocate to expand the services covered in a home-based setting and facilitate whole-person care that reduces stresses on patients and families. Compassus’ proprietary care model is built around the whole-person approach to care. In 2020, Compassus’ companywide implementation of Care Delivery, The Compassus Way ™ earned honors from the National Quality Forum in its Next-Generation Innovator competition.
