Presenter: Mark Woodka, CEO, OnShift and Irene Fleshner, RN, MHSA, FACHE, Senior Vice President, Strategic Nursing Initiatives, Genesis Health Care
Long-term care and senior living providers are facing massive cost pressures due to reimbursement cuts, healthcare reform, changing consumer preferences and economic uncertainties. This session will explore specific practices for providers to not only control their largest operating expense -- labor -- but also improve quality of care.
"Managing labor costs is a top priority in today's environment, as providers are increasingly pressed to operate at peak efficiencies while considering the care needs of residents," stated Mark Woodka, CEO, OnShift. "Implementing just a few staffing practices can have a significant impact to an organization's bottom line, while also improving staff satisfaction and resident care. Such improvements are absolutely critical to success with increasing focus on reducing avoidable hospitalizations and changing healthcare payment and delivery models throughout the continuum of care."
