About this Episode

Around 40 to 50% of Covid-19 deaths have come from residents of long-term care facilities, yet post-acute providers have seemingly been overlooked. Radio Advisory host Rachel (Rae) Woods talks to Jared Landis, Advisory Board’s leader of post-acute research, about the impact Covid-19 has had on the post-acute sphere, and what health care leaders need to do for their long-term care providers right now. In the episode, you’ll hear Landis discuss how vital it is that health care leaders address the effects of Covid-19 on their long-term care providers, how they can do that, especially through innovation, and how Covid-19 has exposed already-existing challenges within the post-acute care space.
