[Media] - LTC operators could see increases of up to 30% in liability insurance

By Prime Care Tech Marketing on Tue, Nov 27, 2018 @ 09:31 AM

A recent McKnight’s article reported on increases to commercial liability insurance policies for LTC providers – as much as 30 percent.

Experts with Willis Towers Watson made that prediction last week, noting that the eldercare space is difficult for payers. Their data points to the following factors that create emerging risk in senior care:

  • Class-action lawsuits focused on anti-consumer, staffing, marketing and ADA violations could be coming in more states.
  • Expanded litigation beyond urban areas is affecting results in suburban and exurban venues more dramatically.
  • Natural disasters, including wildfires, catastrophic storms and flooding, are drawing underwriter attention to disaster preparedness.
  • Although occupancy challenges have dampened M&A in the sector, significant activity persists and a focus on due diligence, vetting policies and procedures, and mitigating turnover is critical to making sure the combinations will succeed. Underwriters will still focus on pre-acquisition loss history on assets that are in play.

“Here at primeFORCE, our enterprise risk management services are positioned to help LTC operators better evaluate risk across the operational spectrum,” said Joe Stone, EVP, primeFORCE. “Due to our deep experience in the LTC marketplace and our alliance with Willis Towers Watson, we can provide clients and prospective customers with a no-cost risk audit designed to help mitigate these increases in operating insurance costs.”

[Media] - Upcoming HIPAA audits to use harsher investigative tools - McKnight's

By Prime Care Tech Marketing on Mon, Nov 05, 2018 @ 02:51 PM

A recent article in McKnight's outlines additional enforcement measures beyond standard audits conducted by Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights to educate providers.

According to the article, the agency will begin focusing more on enforcement using harsher investigative tools, which may include subpoenas, legal action, corrective plan implementation, forced payback, and even statutory penalties.

"It's a wake-up call for providers to better prepare themselves,” notes Peter Teichert, Vice President, Compliance, Prime Care Technologies. “Our partnership with HIPAA One offers access to industry-leading HIPAA Risk Assessment software, so our customers now have a simpler way to manage all the tasks involved with HIPAA compliance.”

[Media] The price of admission - McKnight's

By Prime Care Tech Marketing on Thu, Nov 01, 2018 @ 04:34 PM

A recent article in McKnight's on the pace of EHR adoption in assisted living facilities centers around several factors. Cheryl Field, Chief Product Officer, Prime Care Technologies, weighs in with other industry experts. 

“The organizations that are part of larger entities are much more accepting and readily adopting because their business lines are attached to other parts of the post-acute care continuum, where they have seen how critical it is to have standardization of data,” she says. 

"From a security perspective, interoperability becomes an issue on technical standards and practice,” she adds. “It is a challenge and remains so. I think we’re about five to 10 years out from being fully interoperable across the continuum.”
