Palliative care is growing at an accelerated pace with providers beginning to unlock the keys to profitability through value-based contracts. By taking a deep dive into one of the most rapidly growing fields of healthcare in the U.S., we can understand why these predictions for growth point to palliative as one of the highest demand and most needed services in the post-acute care continuum and what the future of palliative care includes.
In this episode hosted by Mike Valentine, CEO of Netsmart, we explore the expansion of palliative care services as well as some of the challenges facing providers. Joining us in the dialogue to unlock success for palliative care is Dawn Iddings, Senior Vice President & GM of Post-Acute and Jim Parker, Editor of Hospice News. Jim is a journalist who has covered healthcare and public policy since 2000 and has a deep understanding of the hospice and palliative care industry. The collective of post-acute care industry leaders discuss improving access to palliative care, building the infrastructure to support new programs and understanding the benefits and pitfalls of new payment models.
Join us as we share key factors to unlocking success:
