Carl Goodfriend, CIO of ProviNET Solutions, speaks at 16th Annual Ziegler Senior Living Finance and Strategy Conference

Carl Goodfriend speaks at the 2013 Ziegler ConferenceTinley Park, IL (September, 2013) The Annual Ziegler Senior Living Conference was a great success held in San Antonio, Texas. This invitation-only event, focused on cutting-edge finance and strategic positioning trends affecting today’s senior living providers. The conference is designed for CEOs, CFOs, key board members and institutional investors, credit enhancers, rating agency representatives and industry professionals. On Thursday, September 26, 2013, Carl Goodfriend participated as an expert speaker at the 3-day, Ziegler Senior Living Finance and Strategy Conference in San Antonio, Texas.

To break the ice, Carl started his presentation with having “Siri” from his iPhone introduce him, which turned out to be very impressive. For those that are unfamiliar with what “Siri” is, it is an application available on an iPhone. It lets you use your voice to send messages, schedule meetings, place phone calls and more, right from your phone. She understands what you say, knows what you mean, and even talks back to you. It was a great hit. After the excitement died down, Carl got down to business with highlighting the information technology arm of Providence Life Services, and how their area of expertise has expanded into a for-profit venture that is notable contributor to the organization’s revenue stream.

At this conference session, Carl highlighted the following:

– How did ProviNET get to where they are now
– What is their Core Competence
– Future of technology in the Long Term Care space
– How has Providence Life Services benefited
– What lessons can be learned from our experience

“I am very honored to be asked to participate in this year’s Ziegler Senior Living Conference hosted in Texas. I would like to thank the Ziegler organization for allowing me to share our story and to thank all of those that attended the session.” said Carl Goodfriend.
