Healthcare is complex, healthcare in the home even more so. Part of the reason in-home care isn't widespread is because it's not economical without a heavy technological component. Providing economical in-home care is a series of optimization problems. How do you assign visits to the lowest cost health professional qualified for a visit? How do you account for different license requirements across states (e.g. a medical assistant in Florida can administer an IV, but in California they can't)? How do you ensure visits that require refrigerated supplies are completed earlier in the day? Solving this 3-dimensional tradeoff between time, geography, and licensure is what we do day-in and day-out.
