Lifespark recently announced the hire of Matt Nyquist, a former leader with UnitedHealth Group’s Optum arm, as chief population health officer. Nyquist will help lead Lifespark’s expansion to states beyond its home base of Minnesota later this year.

Lifespark’s growth will mark another milestone in senior living’s evolution toward being more integrated within population health payment models. And I see Nyquist’s hire as a win for Lifespark, with implications that senior living providers should unpack.

Recall that last year, Lifespark acquired the Tealwood portfolio, adding senior living to its continuum of home- and community-based care. The company’s model is to provide more person-centered, seamless care and services as people age by integrating its full-continuum services with insurance products in at-risk models, supported by a technological backbone.
