KLAS takes a deep look into the evolving homecare market

OREM, UT, February 11, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ — Pressure from homecare agencies dealing with payment reform is driving vendors to up their games to meet those needs. These findings and more are shared in the latest KLAS report, entitled Homecare 2014: Vendor Readiness to Meet New Demands.
