NHPCO CEO Edo Banach’s Guidance for Navigating the Path Forward

Edo Banach, president & CEO, National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization

Along with a pandemic and a contentious election, hospice leaders have to navigate new payment models, diversify and expand services, protect the health and safety of patients and staff, meet new regulatory challenges and leverage technology to deliver care virtually.

How do we navigate the path forward?

In this episode of Netsmart CareThreads, we asked Edo Banach, president and CEO at the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization, for his thoughts.

Here's what Edo said:

  • How palliative care technology helps provision hospice and palliative care
  • Why the future may lie in person-centered interdisciplinary care
  • How the Medicare Advantage plan can affect patient perceptions of choice
  • Ensuring that current community palliative care providers remain relevant for serious illness care at the state level
  • Alternative payment structures

This discussion with Edo Banach was taken from our show Netsmart CareThreads.
