The demand for home health and personal care aides is projected to increase by 39% from 2000 to 2030. The existing workforce cannot meet the current demand, there is an overall imbalance in the number of senior citizens and working adults and there are disparities in the level of care that communities receive. The healthcare and human services sectors are at an inflection point, and the decisions made in the next five years will chart the future of patient care.

On June 11, the BNP Healthcare & Human Services Industry Leaders Forum convened to discuss regional strategies to address these pressing challenges. The forum emphasized the importance of a future-focused healthcare system and explored how to use new technologies for service reliability in changing markets. Key questions during the conversation included:

What system changes are needed to sustain responsible healthcare services in our community, state and nation? 

How can the application of new technologies drive efficient services for our patients and clients?

The ILF was fortunate to be joined by Bea Grause, President of the Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS), for a presentation on the changing healthcare landscape and a data-driven market assessment on New York State’s healthcare infrastructure. HANYS works to ensure every New Yorker has access to affordable, high-quality care. It advances the health of individuals and communities by providing leadership, representation and service to not-for-profit and public hospitals, health systems, nursing homes and other healthcare organizations throughout New York state.

As president of the Healthcare Association of New York State, Bea Grause is a passionate advocate for New York’s nonprofit and public hospitals, health systems and post-acute and continuing care providers.
