Gov. Mark Parkinson, President and CEO of AHCA/NCAL, Keynotes at Harmony 2015
Date:11/13/2015

Citing that post-acute care leaders and organizations are “more unified than ever and more politically active than ever”, Gov. Mark Parkinson kicked off “Harmony 2015”, one of the industry’s premier thought leadership symposiums, hosted by Massachusetts-based Harmony Healthcare International. With more than 250 administrators, directors of nursing, rehabilitation managers and other management and corporate personnel gathered at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Ledyard, Connecticut, Parkinson detailed an optimistic view of the Medicare reforms, payment models and quality initiatives that are revolutionizing the nation’s skilled nursing and assisted living provider organizations.

The Honorable Mark Parkinson, the 45th Governor of the State of Kansas and the current President and CEO of the American Health Care Association (AHCA) and the National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL), gave the keynote address at the event, on November 5, that launched two days of general sessions and breakouts on all aspects of the post-acute care industry. Parkinson’s organization represents more than 12,000 for- and not-for-profit nursing homes, assisted living organizations and centers for the care of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

“Gov. Parkinson’s and AHCA/NCAL’s initiatives on behalf of those who serve America’s elder population has helped all of us overcome health care regulatory and budgetary challenges by mustering bi-partisan support in Washington and strengthening our industry’s voice on the Hill,” said Kris Mastrangelo, OTR/L, LNHA, MBA, President and CEO of Harmony Healthcare International, “Knowing that we are well-represented in Washington by AHCA/NCAL allows us to focus our energies on the day-to-day business of changing payment models, reimbursement, compliance and care.”

The symposium featured post-acute care industry and thought leaders who addressed topics relevant to the state of the industry today. In addition, 24 break-out sessions offered a variety of clinical, operational, financial and marketing topics. Up to 12 hours of continuing education credit was offered for Nursing Home Administrators, Nurses, Speech Language Pathologists, Occupational and Physical Therapists. This year’s symposium saw a 20% increase in attendance and a doubling of the number of event sponsor-exhibitors.    

“Mark Parkinson’s keynote and the theme of this year’s symposium, “Engage: Don’t Just Age”, highlighted AHCA/NCAL’s and our industry’s passion for bettering the lives and lifestyles of our nation’s elder population and our commitment to improving care, quality, operations, compliance and regulations across the continuum,” said Mastrangelo.
