In a Home Health Care News article published June 19, Brian Petranick, Right at Home’s CEO and President, talked about why home care is impacting the healthcare industry during a panel discussion at the Healthcare Innovation and Investment Conference in Chicago this week:

Home care, we’re there often before Medicare-certified home health comes in — and we’re there after."
