"Returning to graduate school forced me to embrace the latest technology, adopt new theories, and develop proficiency with the tools and skill sets currently being taught. Combining this fresh out of business school mindset with over 35+ years real world executive management experience and adding my personal ongoing caregiver existence provides me a VERY unique combination for creating the CareProviders New Mexico model" he said.
"Providing care for my parents, especially the final 6 years of their life and currently being responsible for providing care to my 94-year-old Aunt, provides firsthand exposure to the needs of our seniors, especially their non-acute medical needs" Mr. Baca said.
"My time with Heartland provided the financial (actuarial) side of health care an especially important skill in todays changing regulatory driven care model. This knowledge is critical as healthcare evolves from a FFS (fee for service) model to a value/performance-based initiative. The traditional in-home care agency “meet too” strategies may not meet the riggers of regulatory scrutiny required for continuum of care nor its changing financial criteria" he added.

Ron founded CareProvidersTM New Mexico after several life-changing events lead him to consolidate his professional, academic, and personal caregiving experience into a new transformative in-home care enterprise. Ron learned firsthand with his own family the challenges of navigating today’s health care maze. But it was as primary caregiver to his parents both aging in place until 96 years of age that he realized his past provided the perfect foundation for creating a new kind of in-home care company.
