There is no doubt that healthcare’s multifaceted structure prompts challenges throughout the care continuum. Meanwhile, patients increasingly expect the convenience of a seamless, quality healthcare experience from clinic to the hospital, to post-acute care environments, and ultimately to their home. So, healthcare industry partners must work together to determine how to best employ technology, networking, and standards of care to improve the patient’s experience, accelerate care delivery—no matter where it happens—and improve client safety—all at the same time. Novel care models have the potential to deliver integrated patient care across the clients trauma remodeling continuum (Day 1- Week 8+ postOp) that results in positive quality outcomes and an outstanding experience for all involved.

Through the boom of aesthetic innovation, client healthcare needs have outgrown the ability of current policies and regulatory boards. How can we create new policies that honor and respect the needs of clients while protecting professionals? Reducing liability? Setting standards of care that meet the needs of today’s modern society?

New standards of care need to be implemented for today’s body aesthetic client demographic instead of trying to shove their needs into outdated approaches that not only no longer serve the general public or shareholders at large, but are actively creating negligence, incompetence, and malpractice epidemics throughout the country.

The current one-size-fits-all approach to body aesthetics is failing clients and providers. Current scopes of practice are limiting; and instead of evolving with the demands of clients, professionals have spent the last 10 years being told to climb back into the boxes they crawled out of. When and how are scopes of practice studied, updated, and executed to progress with the needs of the general public? How can we expand healthcare to include the needs of this niche demographic clientele and the professionals that care for them?

The rapid advancement of technological devices used in body aesthetics has left current regulations in the dust! This session tackles the need for industry-driven classification systems. The American Council of Body Altering Aesthetics and the CSL Therapy Governing Bureau have developed innovative new classifications for a category of transformative technologies. We’ll explore how these systems empower providers with safe and effective tools for trauma remodeling care, ensuring clients receive optimal treatment within a modern regulatory framework. 

The ongoing transformation of healthcare towards a patient-centric model requires the collaborative efforts of healthcare providers, technology leaders, and patient advocates. Patients want care that is kind, convenient and fair. They want to be known, heard, and provided treatment plans that reflect and include their values. In addition, they expect emotional support, competent bedside manner, and assurance that their healthcare will be prioritized. While payers demand high quality outcomes and value for the care they are supporting, patients want access to care at a price they can afford. As aesthetic demands– surgically and non surgically– are on the rise keeping in mind consumerism and care navigations, how can we improve every touchpoint in the patient journey? How can we place clients back at the forefront of our policy making and caretaking?

Yes, we know healthcare is ripe for disruption, but has it actually been disrupted yet? Outside entrants are becoming primary players, patient value expectations continue to increase, workforce challenges are driving new models of care, and payers are expecting value from the financial investments they are making. The use of technology has already assisted in driving this healthcare revolution, but what can we expect in the next year? 3 years? 5 years? How will AI, wearables, robotics, and virtual care change the way we deliver patient care? What is on the horizon that we have not even imagined? What politics, new research, and legislation needs to be introduced to ride this new healthcare technology wave? Disruption can create a shift in mental models, creating opportunities for improvement in caring for our communities. Whatever may be next, let’s be ready to embrace it!

As we work to shape healthcare policy for a healthier tomorrow, we explore the US healthcare ecosytem’s critical and ever-evolving regulatory landscape. This includes Recovery Homeownership– expanding the depths of client care and regulations to include short term stay facilities that meet the needs of clients, safely. There is ample policy change on the horizon to allow our health system to keep pace with elective healthcare, a seismic shift in consumer demands and a heightened focus on professional needs. People are fed up with the US healthcare system and pleading for change, it’s time for the industry to respond with action. Experts, policymakers, and industry leaders are coming together to foster insightful dialogue, challenge the status quo that got us here, and chart the new course to reshape the future of healthcare as we know it.

It stands as a benchmark for competency, with inclusions surpassing the minimum requirements set by the Federal Department of Education.




The development of this program is underpinned by a robust scientific method, integrating principles of cognitive learning, information acquisition, and knowledge retention.
