While the word 'palliative' literally means to cloak or conceal, healthcare is taking the wraps off this critical service — in spite of provider resistance. Recent data increasingly supports the thesis that a well-timed palliative care consult can enhance the patient experience and foster appropriate use of healthcare resources.

Almost three-quarters of healthcare organizations surveyed have a palliative care program, according to 2014 market data from the Healthcare Intelligence Network.

2014 Healthcare Benchmarks: Palliative Care documents emerging trends in palliative care at 223 healthcare organizations, from the timing for initial palliative care consults to individuals on the palliative care team to the impact this specialized care is having on healthcare utilization and the patient experience — two critical markers of healthcare performance.

This 40-page report analyzes the responses of 223 healthcare organizations to HIN's inaugural industry survey on palliative care conducted in January 2014.

It is designed to meet business and planning needs of health plans, employers, managed care organizations, physician organizations, health systems and others by providing critical benchmarks in palliative care.

This all-new research report is supported with dozens of graphs and tables and describes emerging trends in palliative care, including the members of the palliative care team and the venues where palliative care is administered.

  • Availability of current and planned palliative care programs;
  • Top tools for identifying candidates for palliative care;
  • Risk stratification tools to determine palliative care eligibility;
  • Key characteristics of the palliative care population;
  • Prevalence of palliative care program components — metrics on pain and symptom management, spiritual counseling, caregiver education, and more;
  • Successful palliative care tools, workflows and strategies — all in respondents' own words;
  • Challenges of palliative care;
  • Impact of palliative care on the key metrics of reimbursement, hospital and ER utilization, patient and caregiver satisfaction, medication adherence, and other data points;
  • ROI from palliative care;
  • The complete 2014 Palliative Care survey tool;
