#HomeHealthChat address HME needs

On Tuesday, January 27 People for Quality Care led a home health chat with the Alliance on Home Health Quality and Innovation.  The chat focused on home health partnerships with home medical equipment (HME).  This event illustrates the continued partnership between the HME industry and other homecare organizations to better the lives of those that rely on quality medical equipment and care.
