Lane Bowen

Knowing whether to provide rehabilitation in-house or through a contracted third party can be confusing. A webinar to take place Thursday, Oct. 22, at 1 p.m. ET, may help inform such a decision.

The webinar, entitled “Hidden Costs of Managed and In-house Therapy Models” will discuss the financial downsides of in-house rehab. Hidden costs can present a great deal of risk, have lower patient outcomes and cost much more than a skilled nursing facility operator may realize.

Speakers Lane Bowen, chief strategy officer of Avalon Health Care Group and former president and chief operations officer of Sava Senior Care; and Meera Riner, chief operations officer of Nexion Heath, will speak about why they chose a third-party rehab provider. Melissa Brown, chief operating officer of Gravity Healthcare Consulting, will talk about a research study conducted earlier this year.
