NORWALK, CT – January 23, 2013 – Senior Living Business Interactive will be hosting an important webcast to address the importance of acute care and post-acute care integration on Thursday, February 7, 2013. Effective January 3, 2013, the Affordable Care Act requires doctors, hospitals and other health care providers — including long-term care facilities — to coordinate care provided to Medicare patients through Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs). In return, incentives reward ACOs based on lowering the cost of providing health care services and meeting benchmark levels for quality care.

The moderator of the webcast, Jim Moore, President at Moore Diversified Services, will pose topical questions including: Are hospitals ready/willing to participate in ACOs? Does size, location, or affiliation matter? What operational/structural changes are necessary for post-acute providers to participate in collaborative care arrangements with hospitals? What are the possible/likely legal risks of ACO involvement?

Our hand-selected panel of experts will address these issues and answer any pressing questions the audience chooses to submit. Our experts include: Daniel Gray, President, Continuum Development Services; Kimber Latsha, Managing Shareholder/Attorney, Latsha Davis & McKenna, P.C.; William Pomeranz, Managing Director, Cain Brothers; and Rebecca Neth Townsend, Senior Vice President, Ziegler.

The publisher of Senior Living Business Interactive, Eleanor Meredith, invites you to take part in this can’t-miss webcast. Discover what mandated changes will affect the post-acute continuum. Our expert panelists will share their advice on how post-acute care specialists can best integrate with acute-care providers.

This webcast, hosted by Senior Living Business Interactive, is expected to generate a stimulating discussion. If you’re interested in acute care, post-acute care or The Affordable Care Act, then you won’t want to miss this webcast, entitled “Acute Care and Post-Acute Care Integration: What Does It Mean For You?” on Thursday, February 7 at 1:00 pm ET.
