If you gather together any group of people and ask about medical experiences, you will inevitably hear stories of friends or family members who experienced exceptionally aggressive care only to die shortly thereafter. The question that so often follows is “Why?”. Why did they die, despite such aggressive treatment? Why didn’t the treatment work? Why did they have to endure such pain? Why didn’t I know that they were so close to death?
This accredited education session will help you, your patients and families answer this question.
There is a myth in the Post-Acute Care market that Hospice agencies have less to worry about than their Home Health brethren. This is false. One area of constant struggle for Hospice agencies is improving their patients’ Length of Stay. This webinar will teach how to use your data to increase your hospice’s length of stay while promoting early referrals and ensuring your patients receive the maximum benefit.
After a long absence, the So What, Who Cares? podcast is back with John Griscavage of PlayMaker Health. We discuss his dynamic organization: What they do, why they acquired ViaDirect, and how they can impact growth in the post-acute health care market.
Providing quality and regular Chronic Disease Education to your clinicians can feel like something that you have to do, rather than an initiative for Healthcare providers to improve Outcomes and increase reimbursement. However, this Case Study demonstrates just the opposite!
Education is key to assuring quality care for patients. The better educated the staff, the lower the costs for the entire health care system.
Because our society has been anesthetized and isolated from death and dying for as long as any of us can remember, it has become a taboo subject and a “medical” situation. The greatest gift that Hospice agencies can give their patients and families is the knowledge of what the future holds and discuss it in such a manner that they are able to be “participants” in the very natural process rather than “victims” of “failed medical interventions” to keep the patient alive indefinitely/forever. This webinar will help Hospice clinicians give this gift.
Addressing the Social Determinants of health will be the most important factor of health care reform. This webinar will discuss what Social Determinants are, and how they can help you better understand your patient. In addition, we will discuss how Social Determinants affect access to health services, Re-Hospitalizations, & Individual Behaviors. An excellent and timely learning experience!
