11 million adults live with at least one serious illness.
As employers and other health care purchasers pursue higher value for their health care dollar, they seek strategies designed to improve quality at the same time that spending is reduced. Indeed, this dual-focus has been the developing trend among purchasers. By focusing on improving the quality of life for those living with serious illness through access to palliative care, employers benefit, both from the reduction in utilization of inappropriate care, such as avoidable emergency department visits, but also in the improved quality-of-life for patients and their caregivers – the very definition of high-value health care.
We invite employers, health care purchasers, and others to join us and learn how strategies centered on palliative care can help you achieve higher value health care.
