Just five months after we began working (nonstop!) to open our community-based palliative care program, we accomplished our goal. Six months after that, we successfully passed our Joint Commission survey. There’s no way we could have done this without having had access to the information, education, and tools on the CAPC site. This is, by far, the best membership I’ve bought—and one of the most valuable programs I’ve ever used in my health care career. Thank you, CAPC.
Hospices face specific operational challenges that require specific solutions. CAPC membership gives you exactly what you need to balance compassionate patient care with efficient operations.
- Start or grow your hospice’s palliative care services using CAPC operational tools, including: building appropriate practice management systems; ensuring completion of required documentation; and creating healthy collaboration across service lines.
- Build sound business models with extensive technical assistance regarding payer agreements and overview of key Medicare Part B billing concepts.
- Demonstrate reliable quality and cost outcomes, and become a preferred partner for referrals from hospital palliative care programs, health plans, and accountable care organizations.
- Maximize your team’s skills to achieve consistent and reliable services across the continuum of patient needs.
- Standardize staff training in core upstream skills for managing seriously ill patients, including conducting goals-of-care conversations and family meetings, and disclosing serious news. Ensure staff is well prepared to care for patients with complex pain and symptom management needs. Familiarize staff with longer-term management of chronic serious illnesses such as COPD, heart failure, and dementia.
