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.


1) Describe the current state with Fee for Service

2) Explain why every healthcare delivery organization needs to become proficient at assessing and managing risk

3) Explore different risk-based strategies and models other organizations are taking

4) Learn about Frailty as an evidence-based model of risk management
