Hospitals and ACOs are building partnerships with organizations such as hospices that provide palliative care services on an out-patient or in-home basis. The partnerships are designed to reduce hospital readmissions, mortality rates and treatment costs among this patient population.

Leaders from Baptist Health and Hospice of the Bluegrass outline proven strategies for building effective hospice-hospital partnerships to improve clinical and financial outcomes.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Isolate the benefits and risks of collaboration between hospital and palliative care services
  • Understand the unique needs of a patient population with advanced illness
  • Learn how to effectively integrate a palliative care program into a hospital’s strategic plan
  • Determine appropriate metrics for measuring outcomes
  • Identify ways to streamline case management and care coordination across the continuum

Hospital-Hospice Collaboration to Improve Palliative Care Outcomes is designed to inform and educate CEOs, CMOs, CMIOs, COOs, and leaders of hospice and palliative care programs.
