๐Ÿฅ Home Health Index Up 30%+

Holon IQโ€™s Home Health Index has rebounded after a slight decline in the second half of 2023, rising by more than 30% YoY. The pandemic acted as a catalyst for the home health industryโ€™s growth over the last few years, presenting safer and more convenient healthcare solutions than traditional healthcare settings. The relatively low cost of in-home healthcare services has prompted consumers to favor them over receiving care at medical facilities, further fueling the growth of the industry. The growing aging population is also projected to lead to increases in demand for home health. With a larger percentage of older individuals who are susceptible to chronic conditions, there arises a need for continuous monitoring and treatment. With most seniors preferring to receive treatment at home, the need for home health services is likely to rise.

The industryโ€™s promising progress is evident in the increase of the index, with major stocks rising. Chemed Corp. ($10B MCap) witnessed returns of 24%, while Option Care Health ($6B MCap) increased 4%.
