Valued Data for Skilled Nursing Investors and Operators
NIC has been helping to build transparency in seniors housing and care since 1991. As the sector is facing significant change with increased high-acuity residents and shifts to value-based care, it is critical that skilled nursing investors and operators also have access to data that are both timely and accurate. Given the insufficient data currently available, notably the outdated and cumbersome government-provided data, NIC’s skilled nursing data resources are invaluable to those investing in this increasingly important sector.
We are committed to continuing to enhance our data and analytics in the more fragmented skilled nursing sector to drive the transparency that ultimately enables informed investment decisions.
The Challenges of Securing Needed Capital for Skilled Nursing
- A tremendous need for capital exists, both to upgrade technology and to reposition or replace aging buildings to meet the demands of higher-acuity patients as well as payors and care partners. With half of the skilled nursing properties in the top 99 metro markets having been built before 1980, investment in real estate and operations is imperative for future success
- Significant amounts of capital currently flow into the seniors housing and care industry with the majority being allocated to private pay seniors housing. The lack of available data and transparency in skilled nursing, relative to seniors housing, contributes to a lower level of investment in the sector.
- The skilled nursing sector needs to attract new investors, e.g. real estate investors and private equity health care investors, to fund the needed transformation of buildings and technology and to prepare for the oncoming wave of aging Americans.
- To gain investor confidence, the sector must be able to access and deliver better data that is timely, relevant, and consistent.
Each operator who contributes data to NIC on a monthly basis receives a benchmark comparison report, as well as access to two NIC MAP® webinars in 2018. All contributor data is confidential.
