Beyond health information exchange, this SIG also encompasses telemedicine and computerized assessment/biotechnology advancements including vital signs, laboratory testing, and imaging from remote locations. The current politics of health care reform, reimbursement and research as applicable to information technology are also areas of intense interest for this group, as are security, privacy, costs, expansion, educational opportunities and future development of IT as societal demands on its role in geriatric medicine increase.

This SIG focuses on issues related to Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine.  The COVID pandemic exposed the gaps in post-acute and LTC specifically staffing.  Now in year 2 many health care workers have left the bedside and the remaining staff is suffering from burn out and apathy.  The skilled nursing facilities (SNF) and home health agencies are expected to provide “value based” care and reduce avoidable readmissions in accordance with The Protecting Access to Medicare Act 2014.  The emphasis on quality measures remains and there is a push to require increase staffing in SNF.  However where will we find people to fill the SNF positions?  Come prepared to share your thoughts, expertise and learn from your peers.
