Breaking Barriers in Healthcare: Luna Partnering with Health Systems to Shape the Future of Home-Based Care

The healthcare industry is rapidly shifting, and one area that has witnessed significant growth and transformation is home-based care. Health systems recognize the importance of receiving care in the home, which also allows for the opportunity to expand their scope to address a more comprehensive range of patient needs.

Emory Health, Intermountain Healthcare, and EvergreenHealth (note: links contain videos) have joined this trend, entering into partnerships with Luna to expand their care capacity and bridge the home services gap for rehabilitation care. And, McKinsey reports that up to 25% of all healthcare dollars will shift to the home by 2025.

Health Systems Embracing Home-Based Care

Home-based care is gaining traction as an essential component of patient-centric healthcare. Health systems are seeing numerous benefits, including improved patient satisfaction, reduced hospital readmissions, and more cost-effective care.

With the increasing demand for both inpatient and outpatient care, hospitals and health systems face several challenges, such as:

  • Ongoing labor shortages
  • Rising health care costs
  • Regulatory and policy changes
  • Quality healthcare becoming inaccessible
  • Limited care capacity for hospital settings

These challenges not only limit the ability to provide quality healthcare but also extend to various aspects of the healthcare industry, which is why there has been a push towards more care in the home.

Physical Therapy in the Home Setting

While health systems begin moving into the home-based space, Luna sits at the forefront of this shift. As the leading provider of outpatient physical therapy in the home, Luna is revolutionizing the way patients receive physical therapy by providing convenience and accessibility, one-on-one care, and enhancing both the patient and provider experience with seamless technology integrations.

Within this context, physical therapy plays a vital role in enhancing patients' quality of life, promoting mobility, and facilitating recovery. Through gentle exercises and movements, physical therapy can also improve circulation, decrease stiffness and swelling, and prevent the development of secondary health issues.

That's where Luna comes in. Our experienced and compassionate therapists work with patients to develop customized plans that are tailored to their individual needs, ensuring that each patient receives the highest level of care possible right in their home.

The Home is the Future

In a world where we're rethinking traditional healthcare practices, the home has become the ultimate refuge for therapeutic care. Patients feel more comfortable, at ease, and motivated to complete their course of care — and can avoid dealing with long commutes and clinic hours.

Health systems are exploring various pathways to expand their reach into the home to respond to the rising demand for more personalized care and convenience. Some have introduced new, innovative programs or restructured existing services altogether, while others have opted for partnerships or pursuing acquisitions.

Luna provides an innovative approach that aligns perfectly with this trend, offering convenient and personalized outpatient physical therapy services in the comfort of patients' homes. By actively joining partnerships with several health systems and providers, we have been able to offer an innovative approach to healthcare, giving patients access to a variety of treatments without ever leaving their homes.
