I hope everyone had a good long weekend celebrating Hari Raya and Father’s Day. Today, I would like to talk about CaregiverAsia going international.
Going international is never easy. You need the knowledge, know-how and keen partners. Fortunately, we have excellent partners overseas. I am sure a lot of people are aware that CaregiverAsia has offices in Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur) and the United States (Ohio).
Found in Singapore, we expanded to these cities in 2015 as part of our regional and global plans. Both our Malaysian and American colleagues are doing very well ramping up and offering services in their respective cities. These are exciting times and it will only get even more interesting.
For example, CaregiverUSA, which encompasses a healthcare agency and its proprietary online caregiver matching platform, recently announced that it is able to serve patients across the full spectrum of home care market, regardless of their payment sources (CMS reimbursement (Medicare & Medicaid), third-party insurance, self-funded or out-of-pocket private duty). This followed its recent announcement that it has achieved CMS accreditation.
This means that clients will be eligible for Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement when they receive a home care service through CaregiverUSA’s care hub, making claims possible through this accreditation. Over at CaregiverMalaysia, our colleagues have quickly ramped up to have over 1,000 caregivers on the platform in Malaysia. On top of that, they have been visiting numerous schools and institutions to introduce CaregiverMalaysia and have received and continue to receive positive feedback and accolades.
We believe that the situation of an increasing aging population and shrinking family size are phenomena faced by many urban centres around the world. People will need on-demand home care as they would want to move out of hospitals to recover more quickly. It has been shown that being in a familiar environment helps in recovery. Also because of not having an extensive familial support, freelance caregivers would be a great help to ease the burden of family caregivers.
Therefore, CaregiverAsia’s solution is totally applicable in any city facing the above two phenomena mentioned.
