Building a financially sustainable palliative care program: technology and beyond

Some might believe that palliative care is destined to lose money; however, with the right team, simplified processes, and focused technologies, you can build a financially sustainable program.

In this session, you’ll identify the types of palliative care programs available to your organization and choose what technology is needed to be successful in your preferred program. Although having the support team in place early in the process does require an upfront financial commitment, it can help maximize revenue in the long run.
