How Joel Landau has led the Allure Group through the pandemic

In July 2020, a resident named Mrs. Tatyana was released from The Allure Group’s Hamilton Park Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, having recovered from a bout with COVID-19 that at one point left her on a respirator.

As part of her Blue Carpet Farewell, a musician stood in the lobby of the facility, strumming a guitar and singing a rendition of an old Beatles song, “Here Comes the Sun,” which includes these lyrics:

Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
Little darling, it feels like years since it’s been here
Here comes the sun do, do, do
Here comes the sun
And I say it’s all right

Where the pandemic was concerned, things weren’t very all right in the U.S. at that point, though the outlook has since brightened considerably. And throughout the crisis The Allure Group, under the leadership of chairman and founder Joel Landau, has endeavored to raise awareness, raise spirits and raise hopes.

How Leaders Respond to Crises and What We Can Learn

The coronavirus pandemic has placed unique demands on business and healthcare leaders, pulling much of their attention away from growth towards controlling losses. This public health crisis has also changed what most of them understand about handling widespread and enduring emergencies.

The Nursing Home in 2021: What Lies Ahead

Buffeted by the coronavirus pandemic and faced by an ongoing influx of Baby Boomers, skilled nursing facilities are quickly approaching their day of reckoning. Or, more likely, several of them.

Trends That Will Define the Business World in 2021

Even in the best of times, disruption is a fact of life in the business world.

These are not, of course, the best of times. And while the coronavirus pandemic has led to even greater disruption, it has led to something else — opportunity. An opportunity for innovation. An opportunity for growth.

Some 70 percent of executives believe that will be the case, according to McKinsey. In particular, they assert that COVID-19 will present opportunities for growth in the following sectors: technology, consumer packaged goods, pharmaceutical/medical supplies, financial services, retail, and healthcare systems/services.

Making the loneliness epidemic a mainstream problem, finally

With the coronavirus pandemic still raging this summer, a senior living facility in North Carolina began posting photos on its Facebook page, each showing a resident holding a sign that listed the person’s first name and hobbies. There was Linda, who likes art, music and reading. Pauline, who enjoys rabbits and the Bible. Alex, who appreciates guitars and old rock music.

There were 20 photos in all. And displayed behind each of the residents was another sign: “Will You Be My Pen Pal?”

It was yet another reminder of the depth and breadth of the COVID-19 crisis.

Vaccine Rollout Gathering Momentum, Especially at The Allure Group

New president Joe Biden has unveiled an ambitious plan to supercharge the rollout of the coronavirus vaccine, and among other things he wants to assure that it reaches those who need it most — notably healthcare workers, those with co-morbidities and those 65 and older.

“It won’t mean that everyone in these groups will get vaccinated immediately, as supply is not where it needs to be,” his transition team wrote, according to CNBC. “But it will mean that as vaccines become available, they will reach more people who need them.”

There is, tragically, some truth to it, as COVID-19 has shown itself to be especially deadly among those 65 and over. That age group accounts for nearly 69% of the 385,000-plus Americans who had died of the virus as of mid-January.

Will Healthcare’s Supply Chain Ever Look The Same Again?

The coronavirus pandemic has brought into sharper focus what had already been widely known, even before the outbreak — that the healthcare supply chain is stretched too thin.

In February — i.e., before the worst of the crisis had struck the U.S. — just 11 percent of hospital representatives believed that supply chain management in the medical sector was comparable to that in other industries, and 46 percent said they managed their supply chain no better than “moderately well.”

‘Never Too Old To Dream’: The Lessons of a 90-year-old Masters Recipient

The degree conferred upon 90-year-old Lorna Predergast by the University of Melbourne in July was a Masters of Ageing. The Australian spelling of that last word might strike those in the U.S. as odd, but the sentiment behind it should not: Even before she received that degree, she had become a master of aging in a literal sense. And that is something an increasing number of older Americans are seeking to do as well.

They want to continue to enrich their lives, to be life-long learners. And that is a sure path to not only a better quality of life but improved mental and physical health. Prendergast quoted author C.S. Lewis when she was asked about her degree, which involved the study of music therapy, particularly as it applies to dementia patients: “You’re never too old to dream.”

Why It’s Critical For Every CEO to Work the Front Lines of the Digital Revolution

The view of futurist Michael Rogers, expressed at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society Big Data and Healthcare Analytics Forum in October 2018, seems almost quaint in retrospect: He said then that he foresees “massive vertical consolidation” in the sector in the late 2020s.

Now, two years later, we see that he was not only prescient but actually understating things.

How the COVID-19 Pandemic Revealed AI’s Potential in Healthcare

To date there have been only glimpses of how artificial intelligence might be used in the battle against the coronavirus, much less future public health crises. They are promising glimpses, certainly, but no more than that.

Consider, for instance, that on Dec. 31, 2019, an AI platform known as BlueDot—based in Toronto—took note of an unusual cluster of pneumonia cases in Wuhan, China. That was nine days before the World Health Organization issued an alert about the coronavirus. Nine crucial days. Nine days that could have made an enormous difference, had BlueDot’s warnings been heeded.

Are smart healthcare facilities the wave of the future?

Amid the horrors of the coronavirus pandemic, there was a hopeful glimpse of healthcare’s future. And it came from the very epicenter of the outbreak — Wuhan, China — where in the early days of March, a temporary field hospital was set up, manned entirely by robots.

The bots, provided by a Beijing startup known as CloudMinds Technology and remotely controlled by human hands, measured the temperature, heart rate and blood oxygen level of patients at the facility, which was set up in Hong Shan Sports Center. They also delivered food and medication, disinfected the place and even helped alleviate the tedium by dancing for patients.

The Tender Balance Between Contact Tracing and Privacy

In a rare partnership, Google and Apple are developing an API to help facilitate COVID-19 tracing for healthcare organizations on a nationwide scale. Many believe that such contact tracing — i.e., identifying those who may have come into contact with someone already infected with the virus — is a critical step in stopping the spread of the coronavirus.

However, with privacy concerns a discussion point for both even prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been some pushback on these efforts. The ACLU is among those raising concerns about the privacy and security of such measures, with the U.S. legislature discussing bills designed to protect privacy and restore faith in technology.

The test of testing: Why is it so difficult to screen staffers?

The No. 1 priority of all skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic remains resident safety. That’s not even a question, as those operating SNFs serve a population that is in a high-risk age range, and in many cases is dealing with a preexisting condition as well. These patients must be protected as much as possible — a sizable challenge, given how pernicious the virus has proven to be.

But just as important is staff safety, as they are the ones on the proverbial front lines. They are the ones whose duties dictate that they cannot remain socially distant from those suffering from COVID-19 — or any other malady, for that matter. It is their job to work in close proximity with one and all, no matter the risks, and to do so day after day, week after week, month after month.
