Strong evidence exists proving the value of palliative care’s impact on quality, satisfaction, consumer demand, and cost. Because it focuses on the highest need and highest cost patient segment, palliative care is an essential strategy for population health management, according to a new infographic by the Center to Advance Palliative Care.

The infographic examines the impact of palliative care on quality of life, symptom burden, patient satisfaction and experience and healthcare spending and utilization.

When the prestigious Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) began to face tougher competition from hospitals with managed care contracts and limited networks, the state-of-the-art specialty hospital decided to implement a team-based care coordination approach to attract and retain healthcare payors focused on value-based care.

Integrated Case Management: Elevating Quality and Clinical Metrics with Multidisciplinary Team-Based Care details the framework and implementation of the service-based multidisciplinary program MSKCC adopted to demonstrate that the care it provides to more than 25,000 admitted patients each year is both cost-effective and cost-efficient.
