30-year post-acute market veteran charged with delivering efficiency gains, quality improvements and cost reductions for hospice and home health providers nation wide.
January 25, 2017 – Atlanta, GA
InHome Medical Solutions, a wholesale medical products distribution company serving physicians, home health and hospice providers, announces it has hired Craig Long as Senior Vice President of Business Development.
In this role, Long is responsible for driving efficiency gains, quality improvements and cost reductions for home health and hospice providers nation wide. He brings more than three decades of experience including senior roles with McKesson Provider Technologies and Louisville-based Deyta – a quality benchmarking and data analytics provider for post-acute healthcare markets.
“InHome’s ability to generate creative, value-based, customized product solutions for the post-acute market is one of the top reasons I joined the company,” Long says. “With looming reductions in CMS reimbursements, it is more important than ever for hospice and home health providers to maintain or increase the quality of items on formulary while reducing costs at the same time; not just on a per unit basis, but across the entire supply chain. Combined with a just-in-time approach to delivery at the point of care, InHome Medical distinguishes itself through its value proposition and partnership attributes for home health and hospice providers compared to legacy distributors.
Patient home delivery through InHome Medical enables home health and hospice nurses to order specifically for each patient and receive them in each patient’s home or assisted living center. This eliminates resources needed for inventory management and allows them to be redistributed to care delivery.
“Craig’s ability to drive value and growth as demonstrated through his tenures at McKesson and Deyta along with his associated home health and hospice provider relationships are assets to the InHome team and our partners,” says InHome Medical Solutions President Todd LaVelle.
“Why are the products needed for home care or hospice centralized when care is becoming decentralized? More home care and hospice providers can now access a wider array of high quality, customized, lower cost medical products quickly delivered directly to the point-of-care,” LaVelle says. “Our dedicated team plus the resources of our parent company ASP Global enable us to change the purchasing and supply chain game for hospice and home health. Our partners like Agape Hospice commonly save 20% or more and consolidate items on formulary with InHome Medical Solutions.”
