AHCA/Alliance Detail Components of Long Term Care Economic Recovery, Jobs Plan
Date:1/22/2009

Access to Capital - Post-acute/long term care providers may have as many as 3,000 "shovel-ready" capital construction projects that could begin in 60-180 days. This could create as many as 50,000-100,000 jobs if $4-5 billion were available through long term, low interest loans. AHCA and the Alliance believe the best way to make these funds available to providers is through targeted changes in HUD loan practices and FHA loan guarantee practices.

Health Information Technology - Any initiatives to stimulate more widespread adoption of health information technology should encompass the post-acute/long term care sector. People do not receive care solely in hospitals or exclusively from physicians, particularly given the growth of chronic care needs and the efforts to move patients through the delivery system to the lowest cost setting appropriate for their needs. Excluding our sector from HIT initiatives is short-sighted, and will perpetuate discontinuity of information between doctors and hospitals on the one hand and post-acute/long term care providers on the other.

Work Force - The nation's nursing facilities have more than 100,000 current vacancies for registered nurses, therapists, licensed practical nurses and aides, with countless more unfilled positions within other areas of the post-acute/long term care sector. Retraining dollars and other incentives designed to expand the available labor pool would translate into immediate jobs. Any work force development initiatives in the economic recovery package should at least be applicable to the long term care sector, and AHCA and the Alliance urge that resources be specifically targeted to the sector, which could create jobs quickly.
