Hospice: It's Time to Go Back to the Future

Samira Beckwith, President & CEO, Hope Healthcare
Tom Herzog, Chief Operating Officer, Netsmart

Despite its frequent buzzword reference today, “person-centered care” is rooted firmly and deeply in hospice care.

The future of healthcare lies in replicating what hospice care is really about -- serving the whole person by an interdisciplinary team who believes in care without barriers.

In this episode of Netsmart CareThreads, Samira Beckwith, President and CEO at Hope Healthcare, unpacks what it means and why it’s so important for hospices to go back to the future.

Join us as we discuss:

  • How hospice can serve as a beacon for other areas of medicine
  • Why we must get away from saying “end-of-life-care”
  • What it means to go back to the future with hospice care
  • Why Americans think death is optional
  • The effect of value-based payment models
