Outpatient Palliative Care Reduces Hospitalizations, Which Impact Costs, While Improving Quality of Life for Seniors and Family Caregivers - New Study in American Journal of Managed Care
Date:12/2/2009

cal and Non-Medical Care

"Our current care delivery system does not routinely include care coordination and practical, emotional, as well as spiritual support to bridge medical and non-medical home care," says Dr. Tobin. "This is critical at the time of a hospital discharge. In the case of advancing cancer, heart, lung, kidney, or Alzheimer's disease, it is important to recognize that these are times when patients and their families need guidance about health-related benefits and hospice."

Currently, only some Medicare health plans and hospitals cover care coordination for outpatient palliative care, and families seeking a family care manager help must pay for the service themselves. As an independent family care manager service, Care Support of America is working with innovative payers and hospitals as well as directly with the consumer.
