Health Dimensions Group’s 5th annual National Summit got off to a great start! We’ve been so excited for this conference and today was just the beginning.
Joseph R. Lupica, JD, chairman at Newpoint Healthcare Advisors, gave this year’s keynote on the merger movement in today’s health systems. The importance of integration and collaboration across different provider organizations in the merger frenzy that is occurring was emphasized throughout the keynote. His expert perspective was a great way to kick off all that we have planned this year.
The day didn’t stop there. We were treated to an engaging and informational discussion from panelists John Capsso, Carol McKinley, Kimberly Post, Camille Haycock, and Robert Wieland. The panel covered the implications of health system mergers for post-acute and senior care providers. It was great to hear from so many different perspectives. It’s why we love hosting panels each year; they offer a spectrum of insights all in one discussion. This years panelists reinforced the importance of collaboration that was discussed in the keynote. Many great questions were fielded and the speakers promised to dive into greater detail tomorrow.
Day 1 wrapped up with our must-attend welcome poolside reception. Spirits were high as we sipped some beverages and enjoyed some delicious food. The reception also provided the perfect place to network with other professionals in the industry.
As we come to a close, all we can say is we’re ready for Day 2. We’re looking forward to a chocked full day of great speakers, great food (don’t forget about breakfast with our sponsors!) and making even more great connections.
