Interview with Tony Marshall, President of the Georgia Health Care Facility GHCA

Kris Mastrangelo, President and CEO at Harmony Healthcare International (HHI), interviews Tony Marshall, President of the Georgia Health Care Association (GHCA), in the AHCA Provider Lounge.  Tony discusses everything from the PDPM transition to workforce challenges facing Georgia health care providers.   Voted one of the best places to do business, Georgia faces a unique challenge when it comes to long-term care staffing.  With businesses constantly creating new jobs that offer higher paying wages and easier workloads it's often hard for long-term care providers to compete for new staff, especially at the CNA level.  In order to help providers secure staff, Georgia Health Care Association has paired up with several career academies in hopes of promoting long-term care professions to a younger audience.

Interview with Betsy Johnson, President of the Kentucky Association of Health Care Facilities

Kris Mastrangelo, President and CEO at Harmony Healthcare International (HHI), interviews Betsy Johnson, President of the Kentucky Association of Health Care Facilities (KAHCF), in the AHCA Provider Lounge.   Betsy Johnson discusses the current challenges facing long-term care facilities and professionals in the state of Kentucky.  First off, with a very low unemployment rate, Kentucky has a limited number of individuals looking for new jobs, let alone jobs in the long-term care industry.  With that in mind, KAHCF has joined forces with both the Kentucky Chamber and the Cabinet of Health and Family Services to promote jobs within the long-term care field.  As part of their partnership with the Cabinet of Health and Family Services, KAHCF encourages young adults who are aging out of the foster care system to look into careers within the field of aging.  The Cabinet in turn pays the salaries of any individuals taking advantage of this program.  Johnson is quick to remind the viewer that many of today's long-term care industry leaders were once CNAs who themselves started in the field when they were eighteen years-old.  Additionally, Johnson discusses the lack of tort reform in the state of Kentucky and the effect that has on the state's long-term care facilities.
