How to Retain Hospice Care Providers During a Pandemic

Ernesto Lopez, CEO, Hospice of Washington County

As hospice care services evolve because of COVID-19, how do providers adapt and pivot?

Equally important, how do organizations retain and engage care team members?

Ernesto Lopez, CEO at Hospice of Washington County, joined Netsmart to talk about prioritizing employee engagement and retention during a pandemic.

What we discussed with Ernesto:

  • The role technology plays in engaging hospice care providers
  • How to keep hospice care providers connected to your organization’s values
  • The shift from facility-based care to community-based care

This discussion with Ernesto Lopez was taken from our show Netsmart CareThreads.
