Product Description

Don't be afraid of offering continuous care: You can improve patient outcomes and differentiate your services in a crowded market.

There are many reasons why not to start developing the continuous care level of care of the Medicare hospice benefit. Costs are high, management of staffing and scheduling is critical, and documentation of need is imperative. But continuous care has many potential advantages for your organization -- and you owe it to your patients to evaluate each case. Let healthcare management expert Barbara Gray help you weigh the benefits and the pitfalls of providing continuous care in your hospice. In this audio and video presentation, you'll learn the essentials for operating a program. You'll receive sample tools for managing the continuous care staffing pool and hours, a sample workplan for implementing a continuous care program, and more.
