2018 ICAA Executive Leadership Summit

October 15, 2018

2018 ICAA Executive Leadership Summit

Power Wellness is exhibiting at the 2018 ICAA Executive Leadership Summit!  Visit booth #224 on October 18th and 19th to learn more about Power Wellness, the nation’s largest management company in the medical fitness industry. Don’t Power Wellness’ own, Victor Arellano, presenting “Wellness’ Strategic Role in Value Based Health Care”. See below for additional information.

Description:

The U.S. healthcare system is undergoing a myriad of changes that includes:

  • Shift from fee-for-service to value based reimbursement
  • Increasing labor cost and shortage
  • Emphasis on quality outcomes (engagement, satisfaction, clinical)
  • Need to provide service at less cost
  • Reduce risk for recidivism and hospital readmission

While reimbursement rates are shrinking, an expectation to improve or maintain quality at less cost drives many health care providers to merge, create partnerships, or exit the industry. This session will focus on medical integration strategies and programming that provide cost effective solutions to hospitals, post-acute health care providers, and senior housing operators, utilizing wellness programs and medical fitness services. Health care providers who recognize the gap in the existing health care delivery system and are striving to develop coordinated care that supports wellness as a component of health care, will thrive in a value based payment system.

Learning Objectives:

  • Design a population health management model that will improve consumer health, improve the level of engagement and satisfaction of the experience, and reduce the cost of care.
  • Develop a business plan that identifies the opportunities and challenges in creating a medically integrated wellness program for hospitals and post-acute care providers.
  • Recognize how to capture data and report information that will fuel their marketing efforts to attract referrals and sustain or improve occupancy.
