NIC spring conference for small- to mid-sized operators on tap
The National Investment Center for the Seniors Housing and Care Industry is returning its spring conference to the West Coast. Registration is ongoing for the March 31-April 2 event, which will take place in San Diego and feature Dr. Bruce Chernof and Kathleen Sebelius as keynote speakers.
The event is aimed at small- to mid-sized operators in seniors housing and post-acute care. Chernof, CEO of the SCAN Foundation, and Sebelius, former Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, lead the speaker line-up, which also includes a handful of key American Health Care Association state executives.
Some of the major issues addressed in session will be:
o Reimbursement model shifts due to an increasing emphasis on fee-for-value
o Coordinated care initiatives involving seniors housing and post-acute providers
o Financing for private pay seniors housing and skilled nursing and post-acute care operators (how to identify the right lender, how best to prepare to meet with lenders)
o Finding the right seniors housing acquisition opportunity and integrating the acquisition into existing portfolio
o Growth and exit strategies for the smaller skilled nursing operator
o SNF payment models (what to look for when reviewing a managed care contract, best practices to streamline billing and cash flow with managed care payers)
o Developing new product types for middle-income private pay seniors housing
o Obtaining equity for new seniors housing property development
In addition, 37 Capital Providers vetted to ensure their financial services are geared towards small/mid-size operators, will be on hand to make pitches to capital seekers.
