When we tell you we have the dream team at Maxwell Healthcare Associates, we mean it. Deryll Durr is not only an expert in all things home health and hospice BI and reporting (check out his blog on the subject matter here), he's also hilarious, engaging and a team player.

A little more about Deryll...
Deryll brings nearly 15 years of home health and hospice experience to his consulting role at MHA. He specializes in healthcare software, implementations and analytics.
Prior to joining the MHA family in 2017, he served as the enterprise software manager for a large home health and hospice provider. In his time there, he oversaw database setup, established and executed training to more than 800 employees (Field Staff & Back Office) and deployed Homecare Homebase (HCHB) to 36 individual branches. After Implementations, he became the lead for the HCHB business intelligence solution, ProClarity and later Tableau.
Having the in-depth and personal understanding of home health and hospice operations, finance and billing service lines, Deryll is uniquely skilled in creating custom reports and dashboards with appropriate key metrics that can give leadership the insights they need to truly move the needle.
Deryll is a retired active duty with 23 years of service in the National Guard. He holds an associate degree in liberal arts. In his free time, Deryll enjoys woodworking, gardening, grilling, eating Mexican food and spending time with his four children and eight grandchildren (Deryll and his three granddaughters below. Aren't they adorable?!).
Why he's passionate about post acute:
"My passion for post-acute care is fueled by the folks who work in the industry. It takes special people to provide quality care for patients and work tirelessly to keep them at home.
The benefits of both home health and hospice hit home for me when my grandmother needed care. She was on home health services for a season in which her nurses and therapist kept her functional; allowing her to stay out of the hospital as her health became an issue. Eventually, she had to go on hospice services. It turned into a beautiful journey we were able to take with her. The hospice nurses were so caring and helped us best navigate my grandmother's final days. Having experienced two aspects of post-acute care and seeing the benefit first-hand of having my grandmother home, underscores my commitment to the industry and the patients it serves. "
