KEYNOTE: Healthcare Leadership in the COVID Era
Dr. Arif Nazir | Chief Medical Officer, Signature HealthCARE
As long-term healthcare providers, we have been greatly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Whether the impact was to our patients, their families, our healthcare workers, our processes or our bottom line, no one in long-term care escaped unscathed. But thankfully, there have been some silver-linings that have emerged as a result of this crisis.
Dr. Arif Nazir, a geriatrician and the Chief Medical Officer at Signature HealthCARE, will share with us his perspectives on what role healthcare leaders need to play to help us emerge stronger through this crisis.
Three key points will be covered in this keynote:
- Preparedness: Admittedly, we were not prepared as an overall healthcare system for this crisis. Why was that?
- Innovation in crisis: As healthcare providers, we are problem solvers and together we rose to the occasion in many ways to address the challenges presented by crisis. Many different examples will be explored.
- Learnings for future: We must challenge ourselves as healthcare leaders to take all the “lessons learned” in this crisis to ensure we create a better future for our patients and our staff.

Panel: Driving Business Growth with Alternative Care Models
Moderator: Josh Pickus | Chief Executive Officer, Net Health
Panelist: Jason Feuerman | President, President of LTC ACO
Panelist: Marc Hudak | Chief Growth Officer, Longevity Health Plan
As the skilled nursing world moves to value-based care, different payment models are emerging, including the accountable care organization (ACO) and the Institutional Special Needs Plan (I-SNP). The right model for SNFs should be based not only on the financial impact, but the impact to their patient care and outcomes as well.
This session will explain both models and feature a lively discussion between two industry experts, Jason Feuerman, President of LTC ACO, and Marc Hudak, Chief Growth Officer at Longevity Health Plan.
- What makes an organization a good candidate for each model?
- How does participation in each model support transition toward value-based care, improved clinical outcomes, and improved financial performance?
- What role do therapy providers play in each model and what is needed to be successful?
3:45 - 4:15 PM ET
