According to the Congressional Budget Office, by 2050, 20% of the U.S. population will be 65 or older, compared to just 12% in 2000 and 8% in 1950. The number of people 85 or older will grow the fastest, constituting 4% of the population by 2050—10 times the share in 1950. One study estimates that more than two-thirds of 65-year-olds will need assistance to deal with impaired functioning at some point during their remaining years, sharply increasing the need for long-term care assistance. Adding to the soaring demand for long-term care is the growth in younger patients with chronic and disabling conditions.
Couple the exploding growth in older and disabled Americans with the seismic shift in healthcare driven by reforms, and it’s clear long-term and post-acute care (LTC and PAC) providers need to reshape their strategies to thrive in a radically different world. What are the transformational trends that will have the greatest impact on LTC and PAC providers, as well as their acute care partners? How should you respond to ensure success in a changing healthcare landscape? Learn the answers on a complimentary webinar from Manatt Health, “Reinventing Long-Term and Post-Acute Care,” presented by Stephanie Anthony, Carol Raphael and Anthony Fiori. During the session, you will:
- Discover how LTC and PAC providers are redefining themselves to adapt to emerging reforms, evolving Integrated Delivery Systems (IDS) and the sea change in the healthcare system.
- Identify the demographic, structural, regulatory, political and technological trends that will be the strongest change drivers for LTC and PAC—from their current status to their projected effects.
- Understand how powerful trends are redesigning LTC and PAC providers’ relationships with consumers, as well as their business models with health plan and Accountable Care Organization (ACO) partners.
- Explore how both states and health systems are responding to meet the “challenge of the vulnerable,” as the population ages and the need for caregiving skyrockets.
- Examine the decisions and actions LTC and PAC providers must take to navigate the new market.
With cost pressures rising, health systems consolidating, demographics shifting and states gaining power, trends are converging to re-draw the healthcare map. In this new environment, LTC and PAC will play a central role in meeting the needs of an aging population with increased care needs—and on cutting hospital costs by reducing preventable readmissions. The webinar will help LTC and PAC providers anticipate and prepare for the changes critical to their future—and build sustainable success for their organizations.
