Vishing on the Rise

No that is not a typo. Phone phishing, or vishing, is the criminal practice of using the telephone system to gain access to personal and financial information for the purpose of committing fraud. Vcpi has noticed an uptick in vishing over the past several months. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), “Malicious cyber criminals are attempting to leverage interest and activity in COVID-19 to launch coronavirus-themed campaigns.”

The Rise of Telehealth

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic the use of telehealth was a rising trend in Senior Living but had yet to reach widespread acceptance by both providers and patients. Even within early adopters the actual use was relatively low compared to the total resident population.

Senior Living and Post-Acute Care IT spending: CapEx vs. OpEx

CapEx (Capital Expenditures) vs. OpEx (Operating Expenditures)

With the rise of cloud solutions several years ago, many Senior Living organizations have begun shifting IT expenses to an OpEx (Operating Costs) model. So many of these Senior Living and Post-Acute Care facilities are well capitalized when they are built and pay up front for the hardware they need to get their facility operational. After being in business a few years, they face ongoing challenges with margins, billings and reimbursements that make it much more difficult to accommodate capital expenditures on an ongoing basis. 

Finding ways to fit ongoing IT expenses into their operating expenditures is far more practical and accessible than relying on influxes or accumulated capital to make needed improvements to technical infrastructure.
