This web seminar is based on the 2016 Aging in America Conference workshop, “The New Face of Integrated Care: How Health Systems Are Driving Decision-Making.”

It has been a busy couple of years in post-acute care reform. A slew of recent federal regulations put new emphasis on the quality of care people receive beyond the hospital setting and the importance of coordination between hospitals, nursing facilities, community agencies and other stakeholders as the Baby Boomers age and life expectancy increases. This presentation zeroes in on the most important components of these regulations and the important takeaways for anyone in the field of aging.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Name the key impacts of post-acute care reform on hospitals, nursing facilities and community agencies;
  • Identify the role that integrated delivery networks, narrow networks and value-based purchasing play in the post-acute care delivery system; and,
  • Understand how organizations such as the American Hospital Association have reacted to the new federal post-acute care regulations.
