Parsing Palliative Care and the Patient Experience

While ‘palliative’ literally means to cloak or conceal, healthcare is taking the wraps off this critical service — in spite of provider resistance. A well-timed palliative care consult can enhance the patient experience and foster appropriate use of healthcare resources. This HINfographic provides information on initial care consultations, Medicare metrics impacted by palliative care, palliative care teams, challenges of palliative care and more. Thank you to the Healthcare Intelligence Network for giving us a great Infographic about a subject that is not often talked about in healthcare.
