Healthcare reform; innovations in the organization of healthcare; and the focus on the triple aim of better health, better healthcare, and lower costs are driving hospitals and health systems to adopt new strategies for achieving value. A key target population for these new strategies is patients with serious illness. Too often, patients with serious illness receive care they do not want, from which they will not benefit, and fail to receive care they do want, from which they would benefit. In particular, patients with serious illness want to be at home and receive care at home. They want to avoid the hospital, which too often accelerates their functional decline, and access to a broad range of services—medical and psychosocial—to help them preserve their function, quality of life, dignity, and comfort.


In order to meet the needs and provide high-value care to people with serious illness, hospitals and health systems need to look beyond the walls of the hospital to the settings in which people with serious illness receive care and partner with providers in those settings. Innovative models of community-based palliative care including home- and office-based palliative care and skilled nursing facility-based programs can improve care and value. Partnerships of providers across these settings can improve quality of care, increase patient satisfaction, and reduce costs, creating a win-win for all parties involved (first and foremost the patient and family). This Webinar will discuss the challenges in providing care for seriously ill patients and highlight innovative programs and partnerships to improve value for this vulnerable and important patient population. 

After viewing this Webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the challenges to providing high-value care to people with serious illness.

  • Discuss strategies for providing high-value care across the continuum to people with serious illness.

  • Describe key partnerships that hospitals and healthcare institutions need to engage in to promote value.

This 60-minute program will include a live question/answer session.
