Curaport and OperaCare partner to launch monthly compliance webinar series


Published: 1/1/0001

Soccoro, NM (October 15, 2017) – Curaport announced today that they will be the educational platform for a monthly webinar series on the latest compliance and regulatory issues facing home health. This will be in partnership with OperaCare, a software and services company that focuses automating the quality assurance process for home health. The webinar series is slated to begin this month, with content built until the end of 2018.

“Both Curaport and OperaCare are disruptors in the healthcare continuum,” said Tripp Matthews, Founder of Curaport. “We founded our company on the premise that despite how healthcare constantly faces new regulatory changes, there is always a single constant – the need for high quality education. We are seeing innovative companies rising to the top, offering unique, niche value-adds to the heavily saturated home health software market. These new and exciting vendors focus on very specific areas, designed to ensure the needs of providers are met. OperaCare is the company that streamlines home health quality assurance. This in turn fixes the three major problems home health faces today: shrinking margins, overworked nurses, and constantly trying to maintain pace with regulatory compliance. This innovative approach, combined with Michael McGowan’s decades of thought leadership, made them the perfect partners to host a monthly webinar series on regulatory changes.”

OperaCare was founded in 2016 by home healthcare visionary, Michael McGowan. McGowan is considered one of the foremost authorities on Medicare Certified Home Health regulatory affairs.

“I am honored to be hosting The Penalty Box with Curaport,” said McGowan. “I’ve been travelling the country speaking, consulting, writing blogs and articles, for so many years on these topics – so to be able to have a regular series will allow us to reach out and help more home health agencies thrive. We are entering a unique time in the industry, especially as we transition from PPS (Prospective Payment System) to VBP (Value Based Purchasing). We haven’t seen a change like this to our industry in a couple decades, so this is the perfect time to subscribe to this series.”

Both Curaport and OperaCare will be available at the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) Annual Meeting at the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center in California from October 15-17, 2017. OperaCare will be at Booth #331.
