Future Leaders Council: Critical to the NIC Mission

By: Bill Kauffman  |  July 17, 2019

One of the most important elements of success for a business or an industry is the continued development of leadership to ensure that the necessary human capital is available to embrace the challenges of the future, prepare for growth, and navigate critical issues. NIC and the seniors housing and care sector are no different. Leadership development is essential, especially for the continued success of delivering on the NIC mission which is to support access and choice for America’s seniors by providing data, analytics, and connections that bring together investors and providers. As the need for housing and care increases with an aging population, so too does the need for innovative thinking and the ability to solve the challenges ahead and embrace the opportunities for the future.

Good Care Transitions Are Not Enough

By: Bob Kramer  |  July 12, 2019

  We have to think about what’s best for this person, this patient, this resident, and carry that expertise throughout the different settings. In today’s value-based care model, the focus is increasingly on incentivizing providers to do what’s truly best for the individual, the customer. Good outcomes are the goal, and the intent is to incentivize provider behavior that will produce such outcomes, at lower cost. That’s led to the realization that we need to have good hand-offs from one setting to another.
