In the previous episode of the HME Business Podcast, Tactical Back Office founder and CEO Todd Usher describes how, as a provider, he sought to find staff that could be relied on to carry out back-office and front-office functions at top performance levels for the long haul. The result is what he calls “insourcing,” and it’s something he’s developed into a successful staffing solution that creates flexible, scalable teams for his fellow HME providers.
