SDAHO 2023 Post-Acute Partners in Care In-Person Conference a Success

The South Dakota Association of Healthcare Organizations (SDAHO) 2023 Post-Acute Partners in Care in-person conference was held this past week, April 12 & 13, in Sioux Falls. Attendees included both members and non-members who came from across the state to hear from state and national experts on long-term care issues.

The conference offered attendees 26 different educational offerings, with several healthcare tracks to choose from; general, nursing home, assisted  living, home health and hospice. In addition, continuing education contact hours in both nursing home administrator and social work were offered.

Michella Sybesma, VP of Education and Communications with SDAHO, “This year’s conference brought together state and national experts to share on a range of topics from dementia, future of long-term care, team building, and even personal safety. We would like to thank the attendees who participated, the presenters who provided education, and our sponsors and vendors who supported this event. It is so important to bring together this community and provide an outlet for them to learn from experts but also from each other.  As the association our role is to support not only educational opportunities but provide events to help network and connect the healthcare community. This in-person event created a unique opportunity for healthcare professionals across the state to do just that.”

This annual event allows attendees to hear not only from experts on hot topic issues but to interact with policy makers and other stakeholders regarding challenges impacting the industry. Tammy Hatting, COO with SDAHO “We have a nursing home crisis in our state due to closures, lack of staffing and intense federal regulatory pressure. The South Dakota legislature approved a long-term care summer study to address this crisis and we look forward to being a part of the solution bringing innovative ideas and industry needs to our key stakeholders. Our Post-Acute Partners in Care Conference this past week was a great platform for doing this and discussing the future of long-term care with our attendees.”

Next Years Post-Acute Partners in Care Conference is already being planned, with the event taking place in Mitchell, South Dakota.
