Effective post-acute care management is adopted as a multidimensional approach to aid hospitals and other health facilities to cut down readmission rates and achieve positive health outcomes. As the population ages in the United States, the demand for healthcare services will increase.
 

Since the elderly population faces issues with traveling long distances to treat chronic ailments, post-acute care facilities will act as a preferred medium to improve health results at low costs. In America, most people aged over 65 years, who are eligible for Medicare, rely on value-added treatment at home, to lower overall costs. The increasing number of older people susceptible to chronic health conditions will therefore escalate the demand for home-based post-acute care services across the region.
 

The healthcare ecosystem in the U.S., however, has been witnessing a depressed labor supply, with the number of healthcare employees reducing over recent years. This labor shortage may reduce productivity and incur high costs, hindering the development of care facilities. Likewise, organizations continue to change reimbursement policies, impacting their financial stability and long-term success. These trends may create a hindrance to U.S. post-acute care market expansion.
