Interview with Mark Parkinson, President and CEO of American Health Care Association (AHCA)
Kris Mastrangelo, President and CEO at Harmony Healthcare International (HHI), interviews Mark Parkinson, President and CEO of the American Health Care Association, in the AHCA Provider Lounge. Mark discusses his views on PDPM, Five-Star and state Medicaid rates. He says he, like most of the industry, is cautiously optimistic about PDPM as it brings focus back to nursing and restorative care. He also shares his concerns about the current state of the Five-Star rating. He would like to see CMS incorporate patient satisfaction into Five-Star. Additionally, Mark and his team at AHCA have been working to help increase Medicaid to states that meet certain criteria.
