How Big is the Home Healthcare Industry?

As the population continues to age, home care and home healthcare industry services will continue to grow

As the population continues to age, the need for home health care industry services will continue to grow. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the home health care industry generated revenue of $65.4 billion in 2012, the most recent year for which data is available. That’s more than double the $30.4 billion figure from just 10 years earlier.

The industry’s growth is being driven by two factors: the rapid increase in the number of older Americans and the pressures on the overall health care industry to meet the needs of this growing population in a cost-effective way.

Meeting the Growing Demand for In-Home Care

According to the AARP, 9 out of 10 seniors want to stay in their homes for as long as they can. The census bureau projects that there will be 56 million Americans over the age of 65 by 2020, including 7 million over 85. By 2050, those numbers are expected to reach 84 million for people over 65 and 19 million for people over 85.

BrightStar Care and the home health care industry have been expanding to help fill the gaps left by institutional care and keep seniors in their own homes for as long as possible.

Better Care at a Lower Cost

Regulatory changes are having a positive impact on the home health care industry, as health care providers work to deliver quality care at lower costs. This means keeping patients out of the hospital and in their homes whenever possible, providing the level of care patients need in a more comfortable place, and minimizing the costs that rack up when a patient spends 24 hours a day in a hospital room even if they only need two hours of care per day.

The home health care industry has been reducing costs for years due to the shift from long-term hospital stays to home health care. Skilled home health care is an efficient way to provide the services patients need to improve their health without the need for extended or return hospital visits.

Regulations passed in the years since have brought increased pressure to reduce health care costs.

Our Revolutionary Role in the Home Health Care Industry

Shifting patients to the private-pay home health care model doesn’t hurt the quality of care. BrightStar Care franchisees consistently earn accreditation from The Joint Commission – the same group that accredits world-renowned institutions like the Mayo Clinic and Cleveland Clinic.

The Joint Commission has recognized BrightStar as an Enterprise Champion for Quality for six consecutive years (2012-2018) in recognition of our ongoing efforts to help franchisees deliver the highest level of care. This recognition is unprecedented in the home health care franchise industry.

By providing high-quality care at a lower cost in a more comfortable setting for patients, BrightStar is positioned as an ideal partner for large health care organizations looking for a home health care provider they can trust. We already have more than 100 National Account partners who drive patient referrals to our franchisees, and that number continues to grow.
