4.0 Strategic and Market Analysis
4.1 Economic Outlook
This section of the analysis will detail the economic climate, the in home healthcare industry, the customer profile, and the competition that the business will face as it progresses through its business operations. Currently, the economic market condition in the United States is in recession. This slowdown in the economy has also greatly impacted real estate sales, which has halted to historical lows. Many economists expect that this recession will continue until mid-2009, at which point the economy will begin a prolonged recovery period.
4.2 Industry Analysis
There are over 19,000 assisted living service companies in the United States. Each year, the industry generates over $49 billion dollars in billable revenue. The industry also employs more than 1,000,000 people, and provides average annual payrolls of over $22 billion dollars. The assisted living industry has grown tremendously over the past fifteen years. According to the last economic census, the industry’s five year growth rate is 31.3%. This exceptional growth is attributed to the general public’s acceptance and compassion for developmentally disabled and elderly people. Large institutions that cater to the needs of the developmentally disabled are becoming less popular because of their cold nature. Developmentally disabled people and their primary caretakers are quickly adopting in-home assisted living services as an alternative to traditional institutional care.
4.3 Customer Profile
All of the Company’s clients will be developmentally disabled and elderly people that require full time assisted living services. Mr. Doe expects that clients will have a range of developmental and old age disorders, but are able to live within their own homes. Management anticipates that the average client will be between the ages of 25 and 85, and they will have the desire to live semi-independently at not at an assisted living facility.
4.4 Competitive Analysis
This is one of the sections of the business plan that you must write completely on your own. The key to writing a strong competitive analysis is that you do your research on the local competition. Find out who your competitors are by searching online directories and searching in your local Yellow Pages. If there are a number of competitors in the same industry (meaning that it is not feasible to describe each one) then showcase the number of businesses that compete with you, and why your business will provide customers with service/products that are of better quality or less expensive than your competition.
5.0 Marketing Plan
The Home Healthcare Agency intends to maintain an extensive marketing campaign that will ensure maximum visibility for the business in its targeted market. Below is an overview of the marketing strategies and objectives of the Home Healthcare Agency.
5.1 Marketing Objectives
• Establish relationships with referring physicians within the targeted market.
• Implement a local campaign with the Company’s targeted market via the use of flyers, local newspaper advertisements, and word of mouth advertising.
• Develop an online presence by developing a website and placing the Company’s name and contact information with online directories.
5.2 Marketing Strategies
The Company will use a referral network from doctors, surgeons, hospitals, and post operative clinics. As such, it is imperative that the Company develop these relationships with other medical professionals for the local supply portion of the business. Many insurance carriers and Medicare/Medicaid require that a physician authorize the purchase of certain home healthcare services. The Company will use both traditional and experimental forms of marketing to inform, educate, and sell the Company’s service. Traditional means of advertising will include print and media advertising. Finally, the business will maintain an internet website that will provide each prospective client or current primary caregiver (friend or family member) with a complete brochure of the background and services provided by the Company. This website may also feature a log-in for clients and their families to track incurred expenses and update billing information. This functionality would not be developed until the business is profitable and a cost benefit analysis is performed. However, this is becoming a common trend among medical service and care providers, and Management will develop these ancillary benefits to retain a strong competitive advantage.
In this section, describe the pricing of your services and products. You should provide as much information as possible about your pricing as possible in this section. However, if you have hundreds of items, condense your product list categorically. This section of the business plan should not span more than 1 page.

• The Owner will acquire $100,000 of debt funds to develop the business.
• The Home Healthcare Agency will have an annual revenue growth rate of 16% per year.
7.2 Sensitivity Analysis
The Company’s revenues are not subject to the overall changes in the economy. Developmentally disabled and elderly people require assisted living services regardless of the overall economic climate. As such, the Company does not expect that economic recessions or downturns will affect the overall profitability of the Company. Additionally, much of the revenues generated from the Company will be paid for by public health systems. As this is a health and medical services related business, the Company is insulated from any changes in the economy.
