LTACs vs. SNFs vs. IRFs: Mergers, Acquisitions and the Battle for the Post-Acute Patient

Thursday, September 22, 2016, at 1:00 p.m. (Eastern)

Long-term acute care hospitals (LTACs) and inpatient rehab hospitals (IRFs) have pretty much had a monopoly on the highest acuity post-acute patients, especially those requiring ventilator care. But as skilled nursing facilities continued to see their private pay census decline, combined with a stingy Medicaid reimbursement system, they began to seek out higher and higher acuity patients, sometimes competing with LTACs and IRFs. Site neutrality for patient care and reimbursement became a big topic. This, in part, has been pushing the values of some SNFs into never-seen-before territory. But SNFs have to be able to deliver on quality, and some have, while others have not.

In this session you will:

  • Find out whether the evolution of SNFs into higher acuity care will decrease the values of LTACs and IRFs.
  • Discover how far SNFs can push into the high-acuity business and the extent to which LTAC and IRF owners and operators will be able to fight back.
  • Learn about the influence that managed care companies will have on site neutrality.
  • Find out whether the physician and the patient will have any say in the site of care.
  • Learn what this will mean for the SNF operators that don’t get into the high-acuity business.
  • And much more!
