Secretary Kara Odom Walker held a public hearing on how the state can focus on the Total Cost of Care this week. Thought leaders from across the country, and representatives from states that have undertaken these sorts of efforts, already gave presentations and shared lessons. Secretary Odom Walker is intent on building a data-driven system based on nationwide best practices. As this effort moves forward, the Government Affairs Office (GAO) will work with our division directors and state government leaders to ensure that the value and importance of home health care in this effort is recognized.
