Keynote Address

We are the Ones: The Future of PA/LTC and our Role in Leading the Change
Cheryl Phillips, MD, CMDR

Throughout the course of the Society, much has been said about the changes in post-acute and long-term care (PA/LTC). But never have we faced such transformative shifts; in payment, in regulations; in public policy and in delivery models. This session will provide a current state of affairs for each of these focus areas, and address both challenges and opportunities for clinicians in PA/LTC. We will discuss the role and power of data that is translated into information. We will address new settings for services, new payment vehicles, and the role of technology in driving these changes. Lastly, we will address how each of us can, and must, help shape PA/LTC with our expertise and with our commitment to improve the care for the individuals we serve. “We are the ones we have been waiting for.”

Cheryl Phillips, MD, CMDR, is the President and CEO of the Special Needs Plans Alliance, a national leadership organization focused on special needs and Medicare-Medicaid plans for vulnerable adults. Prior to this, she served as the Senior Vice President for Public Policy at LeadingAge. She has extensive public policy experience in PA/LTC, including nursing homes, home health, hospice, and PACE. She is a past president of AMDA – The Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine and American Geriatrics Society. She is a fellowship-trained geriatrician with years of hands on clinical and medical director experience.

Learning objectives:

  1. Review current federal legislation and regulatory policy and its impact on PA/LTC. 
  2. Discuss the role of “data as our currency” and how to leverage its use for greatest impact.
  3. Describe how new models of services are arising in a variety of settings, including homes, assisted living and post-acute rehab.
  4. Describe three ways we must drive the changes needed to improve quality, access and efficiency across PA/LTC.
