A Model for Lower Costs, Better Quality, and Reduced Readmissions

To many people, the phrase "palliative care" is synonymous with end-of-life pain treatment. But as the leaders of Baylor Scott & White Health have discovered, taking a more expansive and inclusive approach to supportive care, pain management, and end-of-life care planning can deliver major benefits for all parties—reducing readmissions and ED visits, improving quality of life for patients, better supporting family members, and lowering costs. The Baylor team has succeeded by expanding their palliative care resources, engaging patients and families earlier with a supportive care model, and offering early intervention for patient-centered end-of-life care planning. The results have been impressive: a 17% reduction in readmissions, 85% better pain management, and more satisfying end-of-life planning.

Order this LIVE e-conference to:

  • Find out how Baylor Scott & White Health reduced readmissions by 17% by expanding its palliative care team across 11 facilities
  • Discover how earlier in-patient palliative consultations translated to significant cost savings for the system
  • See examples of how care teams can engage patients and families in end-of-life planning to ensure a more positive experience and better communication of care preferences
  • Learn how to develop a more supportive care model that can improve outcomes by honing in on symptom management and family dynamics
  • Understand how to overcome the negative connotations of “palliative care” to improve public perception and, ultimately, patient experience and outcomes.

*This was a rebroadcast of the August 2015 event due to popular demand.
