The long-term care industry continues to face numerous financial, regulatory, and operational challenges stemming from state and federal initiatives, budget issues, and a constantly changing health care landscape. Given these dynamics, the need for collaboration and communication across health care and long-term care settings will be critical. Our diverse line-up of speakers will provide information, perspectives, and analyses that will help you understand, plan for, and respond to the dramatic changes affecting the health and long-term care providers and consumers. This summit will be an interactive event with opportunities for questions and discussion.
