The Baby Boomers are Coming: How SNFs can reimagine their facilities to prepare for the future

Occupancy rates in skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) are down across the nation and those who are living in these facilities have faced uncertainty and unfathomable levels of loneliness and isolation. SNFs must begin to re-define their place in the care continuum, caring for our seniors today while preparing for the baby boomer generation of tomorrow. In these Essential Insights, naviHealth Senior VP of Clinical and Network Solutions Colleen O’Rourke presents one way that SNFs can better prepare for the future of care, specifically for the Baby Boomer generation.


Setting appropriate care goals and taking care of ‘the village’

As the novel coronavirus began to spread in March, fear of being hooked to a machine with the end of life looming quickly became a national storyline — particularly for seniors who did not have an end-of-life plan. As we reflect on National Hospice and Palliative Care month, it is clear just how important it is for seniors and their loved ones to set appropriate care goals before it’s too late. naviHealth Vice-President of Value-Based Care Gina Bruno also details how important it is to take care of ‘the village’ who cares for our most vulnerable population.


Opening doors and improving the health literacy rate of seniors

October is Health Literacy Month, a time to draw awareness to the need for health literacy as well as how we can improve it. Approximately 80 million adults in the United States are estimated to have a lower health literacy and the senior population tends to be impacted at a significantly higher rate. In these Essential Insights, hear from Harvard lecturer Rima E. Rudd, ScD, and Dr. Jane Jih, an assistant professor and co-director of the Multiethnic Health Equity Research Center at the University of California, San Francisco, on what specifically providers in the acute and post-acute space can do to open the doors to improving health literacy for their senior patients.


What’s new with Medicare Advantage – and what you need to know during open enrollment

Medicare Advantage continues to see an increase in participation, and by 2030, Medicare Advantage plans are projected to increase nearly 51%. The Better Medicare Alliance State of Medicare Advantage report also showed a “record-setting 99% satisfaction rate” for Medicare Advantage. With October 17 marking the beginning of open enrollment for Medicare until December 7, 2020, read these Essential Insights to catch up some key trends and updates.


Achieving patient-centered care collaboration during a pandemic

This year has been an emotional and heart-wrenching time amid COVID-19. And yet, at the same time, it has been a period of fast and furious teachings as healthcare organizations learned how to adapt quickly in order to best serve the needs of critical COVID-19 patients. Alongside naviHealth trusted providers and health plan partners, Karen Chambers, VP of Market Clinical Operations at naviHealth, shares how the company has faced the challenges presented by COVID-19 to address the jump to virtual care to addressing unnecessary administrative burdens and enabling home-based senior care.


How COVID-19 reinforced the need for end-of-life planning

In the midst of the unprecedented health care changes incurred by COVID-19, two things have remained constant: no one can predict end of life and no one knows what their decision-making capacity will be at the end of life. End-of-life planning is a complicated process; the added complications of COVID-19 make it even more urgent. Dr. Gregory Gadbois, Executive Medical Director at naviHealth, shares a story about a former patient and why having this difficult conversation now is so important.


Lessons learned from COVID-19 — It’s time to reshape health care

If COVID-19 has taught healthcare leaders anything, it is this: the very fabric and design of our current system is flawed. Understanding the challenges seniors are facing is vital when it comes to redesigning care in a post-COVID world. In these latest Essential Insights, Select Medical’s Executive Vice President Thomas Buckingham and naviHealth’s Chief Medical Officer Jay LaBine pen a co-written piece on what it will take to reshape health care and how important it is to start now.
