2020 looked like a banner year for long-term care until COVID struck. Very soon, it became clear that our facilities not only would fail to escape the virus, but we would become ground zero for it. Consequently, we're experiencing a drop in census, an increase in the cost per resident, more and more burnt out staff, and a major reputational hit to our industry. In light of all this, where do we go from here? Mark Parkinson, president & CEO at American Health Care Association, joined this episode of NetSmart to talk about COVID's impact on our current business operations. What we discussed with Mark: - How to prepare for the next two years - Upcoming regulatory changes that could affect long-term care - The potential impacts of the 2020 elections on the industry If you want to hear more episodes like this one, look for the Netsmart CareThreads podcast on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify or Stitcher.
