CAPC Updates Hospital Palliative Care Impact Calculator
This month, CAPC updated its Impact Calculator, which helps inpatient palliative care programs estimate hospital savings attributable to the palliative care team. This data can be used to evaluate programs in relation to peers, allowing programs to plan forward. This interactive tool is free and open to all.
- Updated calculations use recent data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the 2018 National Palliative Care Registry™
- Additional cost savings details, using a 2018 meta-analysis
