There’s still an entire month leſt in 2018

Let’s skip ahead with some New Year’s senior speculation

At the end of November, consulting and managing firm Health Dimensions Group unveiled its predictions for the top trends expected to infiltrate senior care in 2019. Focusing their findings on skilled nursing, long-term and post-acute care, hospitals and similar health systems, the report discusses everything from occupancy and payment reform issues to workforce and cash management challenges.

SpecialtyRx is excited to share a handful of their predictions ahead of time. The hope is that facility owners, shareholders and administrators may gain inspiration from the senior-centered forecast and use it to their advantage heading into January.
