SRG CEO: Senior Living at ‘Important Nexus Point’ to Create Future Care Models
Covid-19 is cementing senior living’s place on the health care continuum, as more owners, operators and health care providers join forces to keep residents safe from the virus while maintaining environments where they can thrive and achieve positive health outcomes.
In one example of what the future might hold in terms of senior living providers collaborating more closely across the health care continuum to offer services on site, San Diego-based SRG participates in a program called CareMore Touch, through a partnership between its capital partner, Welltower (NYSE: WELL) and CareMore’s parent company, Anthem (NYSE: ANTM).
And changes approved to next generation accountable care organization (ACO) models by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), which are going into effect next spring, will give more seniors the opportunity to participate in these programs without having to change health insurance plans. This has the potential to lead to better health outcomes and savings for residents and providers alike.
