HEALTHTAC Virtual Connect 2020: Where Senior Living Industry Leaders Collaborate
On Tuesday, December 8th, from 10:00am-5:30pm EST, HEALTHTAC is hosting HEALTHTAC Virtual Connect. This one-day must-attend event provides a setting for senior living executives to share experiences, gain insight from peers on the issues and challenges in today’s market, as well as bring fresh ideas to the table and take away cutting-edge information.
Though leaders in the industry are used to HEALTHTAC’s in-person events, their new, innovative virtual platform is sure to deliver the same hands-on, personal, and executive experience participants are familiar with. COVID-19 has taken the senior living industry by storm, and HEALTHTAC’s platform is designed to provide leaders, buyers, and executives a place to connect, collaborate, and create a vision for the future while tackling the challenges at hand.
The day-long event will feature three panels with esteemed executives in the senior living industry from across the country. The first panel of the day will tackle the subject at the forefront of the industry’s mind: COVID-19. The panel discussion titled “COVID-19 & Senior Living: How the Industry Has Adapted”, will feature Severine Petras, CEO of Priority Life Care, Lisa Cini, founder of Mosaic Design Studio, and Justin Wray, VPO of Pegasus Senior Living. These industry experts will engage in discussion about the changes in the senior living space over the last nine months, the highs and lows, and what senior living is going to look like moving into 2021 and beyond.
Every element of HEALTHTAC Virtual Connect is designed to allow for interaction between industry executives to stimulate ideas, share practical advice, and enable attendees to hone their leadership skills. The event affords attendees the opportunity to:
• Engage in live Q&A during interactive educational sessions where senior living executives share their unfiltered views on challenges facing the industry and discuss the latest parameters of how we collectively move forward.
• Participate in group boardroom presentations with other industry executives to learn about and source cutting-edge products to enhance the resident experience, improve operational efficiencies, reduce costs, and receive practical advice.
• Enter the Virtual Networking Lounge to participate in or start a group chat, establish and build relationships with key industry executives, ask questions, and get answers.
HEALTHTAC’s virtual platform allows leaders to engage with other industry professionals during boardroom presentations and a networking session. In just one day, HEALTHTAC’s focused, personalized approach will help you find solutions to improve your business and bottom line that will save you months-worth of research.
The additional two panels scheduled throughout the day will touch on crucial and timely industry topics with conversations from top executives. The panel “The Silent Pandemic: How Isolation Has Impacted Senior Living” will feature Sapna Dhawan, President of the Lantern Group, Eric Hadley, President of Premier Senior Living, and Jamie Ranzan, President of Solera Senior Living. These panelists will be digging under the surface level of the pandemic to discuss the impacts isolation has had on residents, staff, and families, as well as their own unique ideas, programming, and solutions that were implemented over the last nine months.
The last topic, which has been a challenge for many senior living communities and executives across the country, is “Cleaning Up: Keeping Facilities Safe In ‘The New Normal’”. The group tackling this subject will be Chet Bhasin, Chief Strategy Officer at Shepherd Center, Joe Jasmon, CEO/Managing Partner at AHMG, Thomas Laborde, Senior Advisor at Aegis Living, and Peter Stanton, CEO at Stanton Communications Inc. Whether it is physically cleaning up a community, new design and construction models, or tidying up from bad press, this panel will dive in headfirst.
