Baystate Health Community Palliative Care Program
June 2, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The Community Palliative Care Program at Baystate Home Health is addressing community needs for advanced care planning and management of chronic illness, and has had an impact on hospital readmissions, and on their hospice program. While palliative care can be provided to those receiving curative or aggressive treatments or therapies, the Baystate program is unique in how it utilizes a team of specialists from home health who work with a patient’s doctors to develop the best plan of care. Degen will discuss the challenges and opportunities the team has incurred as well as share goals, objectives, and metrics thus far.
