The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has established that all Medicare/Medicaid recipients will be part of a value-based system by 2030, which will affect where residents will live.
It also will mean that assisted living communities will need to prove their value and positive clinical outcomes, as well as their ability to effectively manage residents onsite and manage their cost of care, all while reducing the risk of hospital admissions.
If you’re an assisted living community preparing for value-based care requirements, then you’re probably asking questions such as, “What does it mean to truly personalize resident care, and what can we do now to reduce clinical risks and costs like hospital admissions while preparing to be the best, highest-quality community partner possible?”
Together, they will address this topic in depth by providing a roadmap to assess high-risk residents and discuss clinical and lifestyle needs with your residents and their families while implementing interventions to prevent falls and other occurrences that lead to high-cost care and decreased census. The result? You’ll learn how to provide personalized care in a complex senior living environment.
By attending, you’ll learn:
- The results of a JAMA study of 19 assisted living panelists and their top recommendations for senior living professionals to prepare for the value-based environment.
- What it means to truly personalize care by discussing residents’ wishes and assessing and identifying key areas of keeping them safe and lowering their risk of hospital admissions or adverse outcomes.
- How you and your team truly can be a vested partner for your residents’ care-planning efforts by offering integrated clinical services that meet residents’ and families’ needs and goals while also addressing the four Ms of care planning.
- How staff training is crucial to your success in preparing for the value-based health care environment, and how to ensure that your team is as integrated as possible and communicating regularly.
