    Refueling the Population Health Management Engine: Preparing for a Decade of Rapid Change

    Anne Tumlinson, CEO, ATI Advisor
    Public programs and private investors are providing unprecedented levels of resources to healthcare innovators and disruptors. COVID has created a “wild west” for healthcare, where many conventions are breaking down, allowing for a new and improved approach to population health management to emerge. In this presentation, Tumlinson will reveal where policy and capital are making their biggest bets and why. She will describe how these trends will affect senior care operators and where the biggest challenges and opportunities will emerge.

  • 3:45 pm – 4:45 pm
    Concurrent Breakout Sessions

    ​Attendees will choose one session for this time block.

  • OPTION 1: State of the State: Special Needs Plans

    Jill Sumner, Vice President of Population Health Management, AHCA/NCAL
    Betsy Rust, Partner, Plante Moran
    Stephen Taylor, Principal, CliftonLarsonAllen
    Special Needs Plans, in particular, Institutional Special Needs Plans (I-SNPs) continue to be a hot topic and one of the only vehicles for LTC and PAC providers to lead in risk, better capturing the healthcare premium dollar while effecting better care and health outcomes for the frailest citizens. Join this session to learn about the current and future state of SNPs and hear from industry professionals on considerations when vetting the opportunity.

  • OPTION 2: Assisted Living and Value Based Care? Opportunities through Intentional Partnerships

    Kevin Egge, VP Strategic Partnerships, Ready Responders
    Sarah Keenan, Chief Clinical Officer and President, Bluestone Integrated Care
    Dr. Todd Stivland, Founder and CEO, BlueStone Physicians
    Primary care is critical for seniors and access to proactive or timely primary care impacts hospitalizations, readmissions and customer satisfaction. With the COVID-19 pandemic shining a spotlight on long term care and assisted living, the need to focus on outcomes and prevent hospitalizations is even more significant. In addition, Medicare Advantage growth and the expansion of supplemental benefits enables plans to cover nonmedical, in-home services.  This session will focus on opportunities for assisted living and housing providers to succeed through potential partnerships with primary care and other healthcare providers. You’ll also hear about solutions and care models tailored to complex populations addressing key outcomes such as reducing hospitalizations, post-discharge planning, proactive and preventative primary care and clinically integrated networks.

  • OPTION 3: Beyond I-SNPs: Growth Opportunities for PAC/LTC Organizations in Value-Based Care

    Fred Bentley, MPP, MPH, Managing Director, Avalere Health
    Jason Feuerman, President, LTC ACO
    While the Institutional Special Needs Plan (I-SNP) model has generated significant excitement and investment in the SNF industry, new value-based care programs and alternative payment models have created compelling growth opportunities for long term and post-acute care organizations. Once thought to be an option solely for large health systems and physician groups, the accountable care organization (ACO) has emerged as a viable business proposition for senior care providers and their physician partners. Enterprising post-acute providers are also looking to the recently launched Direct Contracting (DC) model as a potential growth engine. 

  • OPTION 4: Nursing Home Without Walls: Expanding the Reach of LTC Population Health

    Tom Coble, President/CEO, Elmbrook Management Co.
    Mike Cheek, Senior Vice President, Reimbursement Policy & Market Strategy, AHCA/NCAL
    The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has stakeholders including beneficiaries seeking approaches to enhance beneficiary access to a variety of health care services in their homes. Learn how providers can lead the charge in this evolving healthcare landscape and be centers of innovation integrating, coordinating, and managing care. In addition, hear about AHCA/NCAL’s advocacy approach on this concept.

  • 4:45 pm – 5:30 pm
    Structured Networking Sessions

    ​Attendees will choose one session for the structured social networking sessions.

  • OPTION 1: Meet with SNP Administrative Partners

    R.J. Gilson, Senior Vice President, AllyAlign Health
    Rick Grindrod, President/CEO, Provider Partners Health Plan

    ​Been in the provider-owned special needs plans space for a while? Join your peers to share successes, lessons learned, challenges, ideas, and next steps.

  • OPTION 3: Provider-Owned Networks

    Katie Colgan, Executive Director, Network Development, AHCA/NCAL

 ‭(Hidden)‬ Tuesday, December 7

  • 8:00 am – 9:00 am
    Breakfast
  • 9:00 am – 10:15 am
    Concurrent Breakout Sessions

    ​Attendees will choose one session for this time block.

  • OPTION 1: Opportunities and Challenges with Provider Networks in Value Based Care

    Katie Colgan, Executive Director, Network Development, AHCA/NCAL
    Tim Grimes, Chief Executive Officer, Concentric Health
    As CMS and third-party payers continue to shift to value-based payment and care models, opportunities are less available for long term and post-acute care providers to lead or participate in such models. One barrier to such models is volume, which is overcome by creating or joining provider-led or owned networks. In this session, leaders in provider networks will explore the opportunities and challenges provider networks offer LTC and PAC providers, including different types of provider networks, driving payers to new models, contracting and program examples, quality and efficiency priorities in value-based care, and how AHCA/NCAL providers can lead the way in defining and creating better outcomes and revenues for our sector.

  • OPTION 2: The Financial Foundations of a Successful I-SNP

    Cathy Murphy Barron, Principal & Consulting Actuary, Milliman
    So you have decided to launch a Medicare Advantage (MA) Institutional Special Needs Plan (I-SNP).  Now what? How do you set yourself up for success? In this session we will discuss the keys to success, examine the operational considerations and strategies that all MA plans need to consider, such as Star rating, risk adjustment, provider contracting, and address the considerations specific to I-SNP plans, including the model of care, which supplemental benefits to offer, and considerations for successful value-based provider contracts.

  • OPTION 3: Building Blocks of PHM: Primary Care

    Dr. Greg Johnson, Chief Medical Officer, Good Samaritan Society - Invited

  • OPTION 4: Federal and State Policy Trends in Duals and MLTSS: Implication for LTC

    Suzanne Gore, Principal, State Health Partners
    Allison Rizer, Principal, ATI Advisory

  • 10:30 am – 11:45 pm
    High Performing Health Care Organizations – Why Should I-SNPs or ACOs care?

    David Gifford, Chief Medical Officer, SVP Quality and Regulatory Affairs, AHCA/NCAL
    Kiran Sreenivas, Director of Research, AHCA/NCAL
    This session will discuss the characteristics of high performing health care organizations beyond just good quality outcomes and how I-SNPs/ACOs can identify them, and why they should enroll them and promote existing providers to become high performing health care organizations. Data on outcomes between high performing SNFs and similar SNFs will be reviewed and will include time for a panel discussion with the audience.

  • 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm
    Lunch
  • 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm

  • OPTION 2: Senior Housing as a Platform for Efficient Service Delivery & Improved Outcomes

    Sarah Dalton Ortlieb, Vice President/Executive Director COPC Senior Select with National Church Residences
    Jerrie O’Rourke, LISW-S, Corporate Director Senior Care Management, National Church Residences
    Tara Wenger, MSW, LSW (she/her) Senior Director of Support Services, National Church Residences
    This session will give an overview of how National Church Residences, the nation’s largest provider of affordable senior housing, leveraged existing Service Coordinator programs to launch initiatives supporting CMS programs and the triple aim. With a constant view of future trends, including a rising Medicare spend due to the aging population, we are realigning our initiatives to include new payment models forcing payers and providers to have more accountability and become integrated across the healthcare continuum.  We will review lessons learned that created a shift for our organization from a housing provider to an integrated housing and healthcare provider. This session will explore how service-enriched housing can support the shift to value-based care and payment models that support population health initiatives to optimize care, reduce costs and address social determinants of health.

  • OPTION 3: I-SNP Marketing and Compliance: What You Need to Know

    ​CMS Medicare Drug and Health Plan Contract Administration Group, Division of Surveillance, Compliance and Marketing - Invited

  • 2:45 pm – 3:45 pm
