Understanding Hospice Providers
November 2, 2017, 1:00-2:00pm EDT
With demand for hospice care growing rapidly, these organizations can offer a significant sales opportunity. Before you talk with these providers, it is important to understand different types of hospices, how these organizations function, who the purchasing decision-makers are, and what their priorities are. In this webinar, Reisha Martin, RN Executive Director of Capital Caring, a non-profit hospice and palliative care organization in Alexandria, Virginia, will discuss:
- Hospice care and how it differs from palliative care
- Non-profit versus for-profit hospice and the management of these organizations
- Hospice reimbursement and payment models, including Medicare, Medicaid, private insurance, and charity care
- Quality metric reporting and best practices, particularly the CAHPS survey (Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems)
- Hospice partnerships with vendors, and what you can do to stand out
