Morning General Session

Healthcare delivery and payment models have entered a period of disruption. This disruption is causing traditional players in the healthcare system to rethink their models as they look to provide better outcomes for lower cost. Healthcare players traditionally involved in creating networks to provide acute care are expanding to emphasize wellness, care coordination, and management of chronic conditions to prevent acute care episodes. This creates new opportunities for seniors housing and care providers who are willing to adapt. As new entrants and unusual partnerships continue to emerge, old silos separating healthcare and seniors housing are breaking down.

NIC Founder & Strategic Advisor, Bob Kramer, joined by David Nash, M.D., Founding Dean Emeritus, College of Population Health at Thomas Jefferson University, Kirk Allen, President, Humana at Home, and Dan Lindh, President & CEO, Presbyterian Homes & Services, will offer expert insights into why changes in healthcare delivery and payment models are occurring; how partnerships, including partnerships with seniors housing, can slow the rising trajectory of healthcare costs and improve healthcare outcomes for high-need, high-cost frail elders; and how partnerships with healthcare providers and payors can generate revenue for seniors housing providers while improving resident quality of life and length of stay.

Luncheon General Session

All industries experience change over time. This process is called Disruption. Disruption is triggered by many factors: changing competitive forces, technological advances, or evolving consumer preferences. Regardless of its origin, Disruption happens. Anticipating and preparing for Disruptive change can mean the difference between a company’s growth—or its downfall.

Andy Waldeck, senior partner at the growth strategy consulting firm Innosight, will build on the insights from the morning’s general session panel discussion on innovative partnerships between seniors housing and healthcare. He will discuss why the current senior care ecosystem is not currently optimized, how seniors housing sits at the nexus of healthcare transformation, and the tremendous growth opportunities created by Disruption.

With more hospital discharges now going to home health than to skilled nursing, healthcare at home is already a reality. Waldeck addresses the challenge for seniors housing providers: how to create business models designed to deliver improvements in affordability, access and quality, and why now is the time to start experimenting with better coordination and truly personalized experiences.
