Innovation - It Takes a Village

Without a ‘playbook’ like the Medicare Hospice Benefit, starting or growing a community-based palliative care (CBPC) program can feel daunting. CBPC programs face many challenges including reimbursement, workforce shortages, and scalability. Despite the challenges, CBPC programs are surviving and thriving, and opportunities abound in innovation and partnerships that can help address the pain points. Challenge your team to move past their fears and harness their creativity to improve the lives of seriously ill people and their families in your community
