Linda Murphy, RN, BSN, COS-C, CDP, RN-BC, is currently the Chief Operating Officer of Concierge Home Care (CHC), a regional home health care consortium. She has been in the health care arena since 1987, having started her career at the University of Florida as an emergency room charge nurse for 15 years.
Murphy discovered home health as a field nurse beginning in 2003, and the true difference you can make taking care of someone in their home. She spent the next 12 years working for Almost Family, a large, publicly-traded home health provider. She later assumed directorship of a small home health agency in Gainesville, Fla., where she was able to develop and implement many programs that bridged gaps in care as she saw them, including an in-home palliative care and oncology program. She continued to expand her leadership role and, in 2015, became responsible for sales and operations of 31 offices throughout the Florida market.
In June 2015, Murphy had the opportunity to apply all that she had learned in the post-acute arena as the Chief Executive Officer of CHC. Currently, CHC has offices throughout Florida. Over short four-year window, CHC become one of the largest providers in its service area. CHC's reputation as innovators and a provider of quality outcomes has allowed them partnerships with all their local hospitals as preferred providers.
Murphy has been involved with multiple bundling projects, Accountable Care Organizations, and initiated several pilot programs that have yielded reduced re-hospitalization rates while optimizing symptom management. She has been a published author multiple times and spoken on behalf of the Home Health Quality Improvement National Campaign about best practices for improving patient outcomes.
