The silos of the care continuum have been shattered by the pandemic. Borders between segments of the care continuum are bleeding into each other faster than ever with a greater need for care coordination.

Aging Media Network is bringing all of its verticals together for a special event. We're inviting our C-suite executive audiences from across senior care and healthcare to learn the trends and strategies reshaping how care is delivered to older and complex populations.


Why attend?

Attendees at our events have asked for opportunities to connect outside of their silos and learn about opportunities beyond their immediate point of view, build relationships and have candid, honest conversations about why some barriers still exist and how to overcome them. 

Continuum will feature interactive panel sessions and an expanded breakout sessions that will match your interest with subject matter experts in other parts of the continuum that will inspire, educate and challenge participants. 

These sessions are designed to be interactive and connect executives with others in the care continuum and learn about their perspectives.

Investing in the Continuum: M&A vs. Partnerships vs. Building from the Ground Up

Amid the ongoing shift toward value-based care and away from fee-for-service payment models, senior care providers and payers are learning they must work together more closely than ever. But payer-provider relationships can often be contentious, complicated by differing goals and expectations. This panel will analyze the factors that define “healthy” payer-provider partnerships while also exploring the senior care trends shaping contracting dynamics moving forward.

Speakers:

Risk vs Rates: The financial Perils and Opportunities of Managed Care

The U.S. senior population is becoming increasingly complex, with many older adults living with depression, anxiety and other mental health conditions. At the same time, substance use disorder (SUD) is also on the rise among seniors. As a result, senior care providers across the continuum have had to address behavioral health issues head-on – whether through new internal service lines or via strategic partnerships. This panel will explore exactly how behavioral health fits into the senior care equation.

Katherine Suberlak, VP Clinical Services, Oak Street Health

Joe Cramer, President of Behavioral Health, Elara Caring

Hear from top executives with organizations that are breaking down barriers across the continuum to create more diversified companies that aim to deliver a more integrated experience for patients and residents, all while positioning themselves for success as the U.S. health care delivery and payment system continues to evolve.

From private equity firms that are assembling portfolios of senior care service providers, to regional operators expanding in the SNF and senior housing world, to blockbuster deals with payers buying home health companies, the M&A market is active and a driving force in shaping the continuum for the future.-click to edit this t

Several trends — including the effects of the pandemic and the reinvention of hospitals — are reshaping patient profiles across the senior care continuum, with many types of providers taking on patients and residents with increasingly acute needs. Learn more about the clinical challenges and financial opportunities and strains created by these trends, and how providers are responding.

Covid-19 led to radical shifts in referral patterns, and now the continuum is going through another period of adjustment. Get the latest data on how patients are flowing through senior care settings, and how hospital bottlenecks, staffing shortages and the end of Covid-era regulations are shaping referral streams.

With Medicare Advantage on the rise and CMS pushing for all beneficiaries to be in a value-based arrangement, providers across the continuum are struggling with prevailing rates. Learn about what the future holds for managed care contracts and the promise and perils of going at risk.

The shift to value-based and population health frameworks has dovetailed with consumers’ embrace of “wellness,” resulting in health care providers rapidly formulating and adopting new models meant to drive older adults’ wellbeing. Learn how providers are harnessing technology, payer partnerships, care coordination and more to drive revenue and quality.

 It is widely accepted that one of the most effective approaches to succeed under at-risk alternative payment systems is to create a coordinated continuum of health care services that can seamlessly provide patients with the right care, at the right time, in the right setting.   But how best to accomplish this?  M&A?  Partnership? Or building from the ground up?  In this session, after a brief update on the current M&A climate, we’ll discuss the pros and cons of all three.
