Sessions

Session I: Strategies for SNF Success: Transforming Data into Strategic Insights and Decisive Action

The skilled nursing environment is continuing to evolve. And while data is abundant, it can also be overwhelming.

During this session, we’ll cover how big data can be harnessed to help providers better understand their operations and take action to create a more successful future. We will explore approaches and tools that will help SNF operators develop strategies that consider the changing dynamics in the skilled nursing arena, identify future opportunities, and prioritize resources for maximum impact. We will illustrate how providers can use existing financial data to pinpoint areas of weakness or outliers in the financial performance of their skilled nursing facility, leverage this information to determine the risks and opportunities for their facility, and then develop a focused plan for optimizing financial performance.

Session II: Update on Alternative Payment Models: A Review of Successful Models and Those That Need Improvement

As a result of the alternative payment models, skilled nursing centers have seen a reduction in length of stay and an increased focus on quality measures. So how have skilled nursing centers been successful under these models?

During this session, we will review the various models currently in place and changes that have occurred to those payment models. We will also examine and gain an understanding of the operational changes successful skilled nursing centers have made under alternative payment models. Together, we’ll cover strategies for integrating operational changes that can be made to maximize performance under alternative payment models.

Session III: IT Security and HIPAA Implications

Is your member and patient data secure? We all think so, but in today’s information technology landscape, we face an ever-increasing threat of data security breaches, identity theft, and data availability.

This session will focus on current trends in data security and data vulnerabilities. We will discuss recent cases and impacts, and review some general statistics and tendencies in cyber threats. We will also review some pragmatic and cost effective steps and practices to mitigate these threats and help you comply with HIPAA requirements.

Session IV: Controlling Costs – A Discussion of Proven Systems on Controlling Resources

How do we control our bottom-line while we maintain or improve the quality of care? This session will focus on improving productivity and communication internally, enhance leadership of all personnel, and implementing cost controls of facility resources. A systems approach to reporting and monitoring performance while focusing on quality of care and improving organizational integration.
