Like most people, I didn’t want to think about my parents getting old, getting sick, or needing help taking care of themselves. But a few years ago, I was face-to-face with this reality. My mom lives over 2,000 miles away and she suddenly needed in-home healthcare beyond what we could do ourselves.

I quickly found a broken system. It was nearly impossible to understand our options or how payment or insurance coverage worked. I was dreaming if I thought I’d get any data from the caregiver about how things were going. It was a mess. (Fortunately, my mom is in much better shape these days.)

Since that experience, I’ve watched closely as a few companies entered this complicated and decidedly unsexy industry, including NYC’s own Hometeam (www.hometeamcare.com). I recently sought out Hometeam’s CMO, Andrew Chomer, to learn how they are changing the home healthcare experience for the elderly, their families and caregivers alike.

This interview is for you if you want to know about the future of who will take care of your loved ones when you can’t and the role technology will play. It might not be what you think. See less -
