PEAK Leadership Summit
Leading nonprofit providers and stakeholders are making final plans for their trips to Washington next week for the annual LeadingAge PEAK Leadership Summit.
If LeadingAge's latest strategy works as hoped, it would mean high-performing nursing homes wouldn't have the fire of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services dragon breathing down their necks every nine to 15 months.
LeadingAge members will begin gathering in the nation's capital Sunday for a four-day meeting that will focus on efforts to lobby their respective federal politicians. The PEAK Leadership Summit will take place at the Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, with dozens of provider trips to Capitol Hill lawmaker offices planned throughout. The PEAK conference will feature numerous educational sessions and workshops with continuing education credit available, as well as a vendor expo that will take place around lunch and dinner times on Monday.
A provider conference session this week was called "Using War Games to Cope in Uncertain Times." Its subtitle could have been "Act Like a Long-Term Care Organization, Think Like a Hospital."
Preventing further reimbursement cuts, home- and community-based services, and housing will be the main topics of conversation Tuesday, when long-term care providers personally visit dozens of their respective U.S. lawmakers in Washington.
You could soak up plenty of what you'd want to hear at a conference Monday at the LeadingAge PEAK Leadership Summit: discussions ranging from leadership and policy to payments.
