2018 NIC Spring Investment Forum to Highlight Industry Challenges and the Opportunities to Benefit from Coordinated Care

The seniors housing, long-term care, acute care, and post-acute care sectors face significant challenges. Amongst these are navigating markets amid new competition and providing services cost-effectively as the healthcare delivery and payments system undergoes dramatic change. The rules of the game are changing as higher acuity patients increase, and the pressure to decrease healthcare costs continues to escalate.

However, with challenges come opportunities for growth and innovation. These opportunities will be explored at the upcoming 2018 NIC Spring Investment Forum, to be held at the Omni Dallas Hotel March 7-9.

The Forum, which draws over 1,500 attendees, is the only conference that brings together leaders in seniors housing, skilled nursing, healthcare, home health and home care, finance, and care coordination to share game-changing ideas and cutting-edge success strategies.  As most in the sector will attest, it’s a “must-go” event for those who don’t want to miss out on ideas to benefit from coordinated care or the opportunity to develop profitable partnerships.

The theme of the three-day event is “Unlocking New Value in Senior Care Collaboration.”  Each day offers networking and education opportunities, including two general sessions, 17 educational breakout sessions, ample meeting areas, and nightly events.

The two general sessions are designed to put current industry trends in context.  The opening general session will feature an in-depth look at the disruption in healthcare payment and delivery and its impact on seniors housing, post-acute and long-term care. The general session luncheon will include a discussion by industry leaders on investment strategies in the age of disruption.

The educational breakout sessions will be divided into three special focus areas:

Investing & Valuations: Sessions will include a discussion with equity players in real estate and service business platforms, a review of local market performance, an update on valuation methodology, a deep dive on current market conditions, a discussion of debt financing for real estate and cash flow businesses, and a look at who will take care of all the Baby Boomers.

Value Creation & Partnerships: These sessions will cover how to achieve successful care coordination, how to partner in a value-based world, the secrets to winning managed care business, a skilled nursing survival guide, what investors need to know about healthcare and why it’s important, why scale is leverage, and how to integrate care services.

Risk & Return: Sessions will include how to take on the risk for healthcare outcomes in a changing environment, why some companies are choosing not to take on risk, why and how some care providers are taking the insurer’s path to healthcare risk, and the strategies for taking on Medicaid long-term care risk.

Here’s who can benefit from attending:

  • Seniors housing and skilled nursing operators and investors who want to position their organization to succeed and benefit financially from the transformation of the fee-for-service system
  • Home health and home care providers who want to meet and engage with senior care operators who need the capabilities and services offered
  • Healthcare providers and payers who want to gain insights into the best strategies to improve outcomes and reduce costs in post-acute and long-term care

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to connect, network and explore the innovative ways to benefit from coordinated care and cross-sector partnerships.
