养老机构融资系列之财政扶持政策

近几年,各地对鼓励社会力量举办养老机构的政策频繁颁布,支持力度不可谓不强。例如江苏省专门出台了《关于加快养老服务产业发展的若干意见》,将养老服务产业列入省现代服务业重点支持方向。计划到2020年,社会力量举办或运营的床位数占比要达到70%以上。纵观这些政策的内容,民营资本可能最关心相关财政扶持政策的颁布和落实。一方面,政府提出了鼓励通过财政贴息、补助投资、风险补偿等方式,支持金融机构加快金融产品和服务方式创新, 推进实施健康与养老服务工程;另一方面,各地对于社会力量举办的养老机构都有或多或少的补助政策,虽然补贴的力度不足以完全减轻机构投资的资金压力,但对于行业盈利能力尚不强的初创企业来讲,即便是小额的补贴可能也会对项目的盈利与否起到关键的作用。

养老机构收费监管简述

养老机构的定价模式是决定其经营管理成败一个重要环节,但它一直以来是一个缺乏严格监管的领域。政府之前将更多地监管放在公办或者公办民营这类保基本的养老机构定价上,由于这类机构收住的老人和政府补贴资金直接挂钩,因此实施的是政府定价或政府指导价,具有很强的社会福利属性。然而,随着越来越多的民营养老机构这几年如雨后春笋般涌现,政府意识到进行收费监管对建立养老行业市场定价秩序和消费者权益保护的重要性。

中国自2017年6月1日起开始实施《网络安全法》,于此同时,一系列与之配套的规章制度已经或将要颁布。这一领域的最新立法将对网络的所有者、管理者和网络服务提供者对网络数据及个人信息的保护责任产生深远的影响。养老健康领域的运营者和服务者在此大背景下,亦受到相应的规制,因此有必要尽早为此做好准备,尤其是跨国集团的经营者。

With the implementation of the Cybersecurity Law of the People’s Republic of China (“PRC”) as of 1st June 2017, as well as a series of supporting rules and regulations which have been or will be issued in the near future, a significant impact will be taken on the owners and operators of network, as well as the network service providers, with respect to the liabilities arising from personal data protection. In this context, business operators and service providers, in particular the operators of multi-national companies, in the senior and health care industry are inevitably regulated by the legislation. Therefore, it is advisable to embrace it by taking action sooner rather than later.

Basics of Senior Care Facility Management Agreement 《养老社区管理协议》的基本要点

 

It has been over five years since we wrote the article “Ender into Senior Housing and Care Market in China”, at which time China had just introduced its 12th Five-Year Plan for the development of senior living industry. A lot of things—legislation, brands, product, supply and demand trend, among many others were unknowns to new entrants. Five years later, many operation brands, foreign and domestic, have emerged in the marketplace—some are doing pretty good and some are still struggling. Walking through the years, the market has evolved dramatically, and now it is a good time to have a recap.

护理站与居家健康护理

今天,我们来讨论一下由上海市卫生和计划生育委员会近期颁布的一项关于护理站的新政策。这项专门针对护理站的新规定,为解决居家护理服务商在实践中碰到的诸多问题提供了参考。而大家最为关注的关于私人经营者提供居家医疗护理服务的合法化问题,也将可以通过设置护理站予以解决。

自第一批有志于探索为居家老年人提供多元化的医疗服务的外商和民营运营商进入市场以来,法律政策一直是困扰着他们的最大障碍。早期的市场探索者发现,他们在当地市场上最大的竞争对手是数量庞大的家政服务公司和私人保姆,这经常将拥有专业技能和服务经验的居家护理服务商逼入颇为两难的境地。
