Increasing Demand for Home Healthcare Services in Developing Countries: Ken Research

“Countries around the world are facing an ageing crisis as the youngest baby boomers prepare to enter the geriatric cohort. The need for home healthcare has never been more pressing. It is estimated that the percentage of elderly population (aged 65 years and older) would be 10.2% of the total global population by 2022.”

Cost Effectiveness: Across the globe, hospitalization costs are surging and quality of nursing homes and residential care facilities is reported to be deteriorating. This has paved the way for quality in-home care. In countries, where it is adopted by the government, home-based healthcare proved to reduce emergency department visits, hospitalizations, and re-admissions. For instance, in US, Medicare saved USD 2,700 per beneficiary annually for homebound patients.

Rising Demand for Elderly Care: The global elderly population has increased by 10.0% in the last 5 years. Countries such as Japan and Germany face an “ageing crisis” with high demand for long term care but much lower supply of medical professionals to cater the demand, especially in the home healthcare segment, where the employee turnover ratios are higher than most professions.

Success of Franchise Model:  International companies such as Right at Home and Home Instead Senior Care follow a franchise business model and many of their franchises have received quality ratings from home healthcare regulatory bodies. Both these companies have recently entered China after the nation announced an invitation to foreign companies into its healthcare sector and laid emphasis on development of home-based care.

Increasing Burden on Hospital and Nursing Home Beds: The occupancy rates of beds in nursing homes and hospitals has been increasing in various countries hence stakeholders are more willing to adopt ways to shift patients to their homes and free up beds for more complex and urgent cases. According to a survey by Canadian Home Care Association, with the aid of healthcare services at home, there has been a decline of around 72.0% in emergency department visits.
