Discover how pandemic-related changes can help your agency adapt to meet future needs

Presenters: Yonda Snyder and Debbie Pierson of Sage Squirrel Consulting and former Director and Deputy Director of the Indiana Division of Aging

While the current pandemic has had devastating consequences, it’s also teaching us valuable lessons. As the federal government has relaxed certain regulations around program acceptance, alternate care settings, and use of remote technologies, agencies that provide long term services and supports (LTSS) are seeing new efficiencies that could help them meet the long-term challenges posed by our rapidly aging population.

This webcast looks at changes brought on by the pandemic and how they can help you add new tools and reduce regulatory hurdles. See how you can:

  • Demonstrate the long-term value of remote technologies, streamlined certifications, and other pandemic-related changes that should remain in place after COVID-19 subsides.
  • Learn about how states have used Appendix K and 1135 waivers to respond to the pandemic and what those waivers say about access and capacity challenges.
  • Examine how telehealth, blended support models, and other modern service delivery methods can help your agency serve more people with the same budget.

While face-to-face care will always be the cornerstone of LTSS, the current pandemic is teaching us valuable lessons in how we can supplement that care with new technologies and reduced regulation. With increased access to home and community-based services, we can better serve our vulnerable populations. Register now to learn how you can bring transformative change to your agency.
