About the Webconference

This webconference serves as an opportunity for Post-Acute Care Collaborative members to learn about the key issues causing hospital and health system Chief Medical Officers (CMOs) to prioritize a comprehensive palliative care strategy at the top of their “to do” list. The one hour webconference will offer findings presented directly to hospital CMOs as part of our Physician Executive Council’s 2013 CMO Sessions.

Issues discussed include:

  • Increasing utilization and enhancing the physician executive role in inpatient palliative care
  • Understanding the business and quality case for palliative care (quality, LOS, cost per case, and risk-based ROI)
  • Growth-planning for palliative care, including prioritized utilization targets, tactics to increase referrals, levers to expand service capacity, and emerging models for cross-continuum programs
  • Special report on advanced directives
