2/16, 11am CST Managing Clinical Risk with Frailty | Steven Buslovich, MD *Included in SDAHO Education Package

The financial turmoil accelerated by COVID-19 has created a sense of urgency for senior care operators to consider a more sophisticated reimbursement model. The writing is on the wall for fee-for-service and the only reasonable way out is through risk-bearing options. But the only way to succeed at assuming risk is to be able to manage it well. For Hospitals, SNFs, Home Health organizations with limited resources, a one-size-fits-all approach is not effective; instead, we need to hone in on the highest risk residents and ensure we focus resources where they have the best possible outcome for all at-risk. This session will help you look toward the future, with comments on the state and progression of viable strategies taken by other organizations.

2/18, 3:30pm CST This Won’t Last Forever, What’s the Next Chapter After COVID-19? | Presented by Capt. Kirk Mittelman and Margaret Mittelman *Included in SDAHO Education Package

Let’s face it, there was life before Covid-19 and there will be life after Covid-19. Before February 2020 none of us knew about RNA Vaccines, Social Distancing, Quarantining,  Isolation, Masking and how often we should wash our hands. How has this affected our daily lives, patient care and outlook on our lives going forward? The answers lie in what has  changed in our current care and habits along with what makes sense going forward. What do the folks working on the front lines see as positive improvements and how we proceed with care in the future? Through research and some good old fashioned examples Margaret and Capt. Kirk will help you make sense of all that is going on and how we can move forward after Covid-19 has changed us forever. With a little plug for vaccines and some Covid-19 fun facts Margaret and Capt. Kirk promise to show you what coming after Covid-19. Join Capt. Kirk and Margaret for an entertaining look at our future as Healthcare Providers.
