What US News ‘Best Senior Living’ Initiative Could Mean for Consumers, Providers

function memberfulTrackingData(parameters) {
const queryString = window.location.search;

Last week on Senior Housing News, we ran a story with the headline “U.S. News to Create Best Senior Living Community Rankings.” After learning more about what U.S. News is planning, I changed the headline to “U.S. News to Issue Senior Living Ratings.”

I regret using the wrong terminology initially. But, I also think that my mistake reflects some challenges that U.S. News faces in its senior living initiative.

The immediate challenge is for the publication and its partner, Activated Insights, to clearly explain to senior living providers what the plans are — not necessarily easy, when it comes to distinguishing “ratings” from “rankings,” for instance, and clarifying how the senior living effort would compare with the rankings that U.S. News creates for other sectors such as hospitals and universities. Also, some questions do not yet have answers: U.S. News is still determining some aspects of the methodology and is soliciting input from providers.
