The palliative care inpatient consultation program is a Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) Project under the Texas 1115 Healthcare Transformation Waiver.  Prior to this initiative the hospital had no organized palliative care program. This session will provide an overview of the pre-work, implementation and integration strategies, identification of the challenges, ongoing solutions, opportunities, lessons learned and positioning your program for growth.
