Take our special add-on pre-conference session “How to Succeed When You’re New-ish in the Business” at the Home Care and Hospice Conference and Expo in October.

Palliative care program development and payment models

Palliative care has grown into a multidisciplinary team of health-care providers who work in tandem to help relieve a patient’s suffering and improve their quality of life. As this area of medicine has evolved so has its payment system – all payers, bundles, and Value-Based Purchasing to name a few models. That’s why it’s imperative to know how to develop a successful palliative care program that prevents hospital readmissions and improves patient outcomes while also helping your agency remain financially viable.

Explore palliative care across the continuum and its various payment models at the 2017 Home Care and Hospice Conference and Expo. Click here to learn more about this year’s conference.
