Moving the HME Industry Forward


I Am the HME Industry – A Year of Dedicated Professionals

December 30, 2013

FORT COLLINS, CO – It’s always an adventure calling up providers for the “I Am the HME Industry” department. Some think I’m trying to sell subscriptions to Medtrade Monday (it’s free), or perhaps some quality Amway products. At least a third of the time, the answer is no and I simply move on.

To all those who have weathered my 10-minute interview, I say a hearty thank you. I hope that others have enjoyed this peek into the lives of HME providers from Portland, Oregon, to Portland, Maine.

Providers are funny, serious, dedicated, worried, and optimistic all at the same time. They reflect this wonderful industry in their professionalism and willingness to serve their customers each and every day.

Happy new year to all, and a special thank you to the following “I Am the HME Industry” victims—check that—participants (in order of appearance):
