70th annual national conference educates and honors providers in long term and post-acute care
SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Oct. 4, 2019 – Yardi® is again a sponsor for the AHCA/NCAL Convention & Expo, which brings care providers and organizations together to focus on health care industry changes and standards. Set for October 13-16 in Orlando, Florida, the conference is expected to draw 4,000 professionals.
Over the four-day event, attendees can choose from 70 sessions in 22 different learning tracks. Sessions will cover the new Medicare payment model for skilled nursing, updated compliance requirements and other current issues.
Celebrated presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin will present the opening keynote address. Drawing from her research, Goodwin will analyze the current political landscape in the context of past cultural shifts. Motivational speaker Brad Montgomery, documentary filmmaker Brett Culp and Commander Kirk Lippold, USN (Ret.), will also lead keynote sessions.
On the final day, AHCA/NCAL will host a member awards ceremony. The National Quality Award Program recognizes exceptional organizations for outstanding care. Five organizations attained Gold status this year, and hundreds more earned Silver and Bronze honors, including multiple Yardi clients.
“AHCA/NCAL has long been a focal point for our industry. It’s where new care standards are celebrated, shared and taught,” said Ray Elliott, vice president of senior living for Yardi. “We commend each organization, award winner or not, for the vital care they provide. They are true role models.”
