This webinar, presented by Katie Wehri, CHPC, of Healthcare Provider Solutions, compares and contrasts the basics of Hospice Care vs. Palliative Care – including their similarities and differences. Katie helps you understand the history and evolution of hospice and palliative care, while also explaining the best use of both Hospice and Palliative Care, and their impact on the patient, consumer, and also the healthcare provider.

With the needed change in GIP utilization, hospice agencies are struggling to keep Inpatient Unit (or Hospice House) beds full.

Katie Wehri of Healthcare Provider Solutions delivers valuable education on this.
