Company Profiles is a subset of Primed for High Growth: Home Health Care Market Outlook 2014-2019 research report available at This report begins in Chapter 2 with a review of Medicare and other forms of payment for home health care. Chapter 3 includes a more detailed discussion of the supply chain, including device manufacturers, durable equipment and community care facilities. We review top home health care companies in Chapter 5, followed by a brief comparison of the financial performance of these firms in Chapter 6.

Chapters 4 and 7 include primary research conducted in November 2013. Chapter 4 is an analysis of the data of factors driving patient satisfaction. Chapter 7 is a discussion of the results of our Home Health Executive Panel survey, addressing key concerns and opportunities from an insider perspective.

We address the Affordable Care Act and implications for the industry in Chapter 8 and wrap up with trends, opportunities, threats and critical success factors in Chapters 9 and 10.

Together with the companion piece, "Consumer  Attitudes  and  Opinions  of  Home  Health  Care  and  Private  Duty," this is the most comprehensive report on the home health industry to date. Whether you are an industry veteran or new to the market, within these  pages you'll find insight and fresh perspectives on home health care and where the market is headed in the years to come. While much is known about patient satisfaction in home health care, little has been reported about general consumer knowledge and awareness of home health care and private duty care. What does the general American public know about home health? Do Americans view the industry favorably, or has reporting on some bad actors affected public opinion? What companies have the greatest brand awareness?

Through the process of completing our latest market intelligence report, we found a scarcity of data concerning American attitudes, beliefs and opinions about home health care. In speaking with industry executives and members of our Home Health Executive Panel, it was apparent that little data had been assembled on this topic and that marketers relied heavily on personal experience.  The report titled Consumer Attitudes and Opinions of Home Health Care and Private Duty, available at, attempts addressing the following goals:

Assess consumer understanding of home health care and private duty care-what the differences are, who pays for it, who provides it and who uses it.

Determine the level of awareness for some of the larger home health and private duty brands.

Find people's preferred resources for finding a company to hire when needed.

Determine likelihood to use either type of service soon.

This report includes the results from a December, 2013 online survey of 517 U.S. residents. Included are responses nationally and by region, gender, education, income and age.

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL.
