HME: The big question: How can HME pro- viders engage payers and systems to pay for their services? London: Begin with the right expectations. Present a business case of the expected finan- cial savings. Include the services, outcomes, benefits, and proposed price model. The abil- ity to share the outcomes data validates the proposed financial value. HME: What are key steps to HME providers proving their value with measurable data and deliverables that improve outcomes? London: Use a patient management system that enables efficient patient management and discrete outcome data collection. Perhaps begin with a limited, paid proof-of-concept that automatically converts to an ongoing engagement once certain pre-defined out- comes are achieved. HMEs need to quickly get to the point where they can talk about what they are doing, not what they will do. HME: What's the one thing you want attendees to take away from your session? London: HMEs can and should collectively take this opportunity to fill the role in post- acute care before others do. HME ny and its oxygen product line, says Gen- eral Manager Jim Clement.
