The Benefits of Hospice and Palliative Care

Hospice and palliative care share similar goals of symptom management, pain relief, patient comfort and a focus on quality of life, whether patients face a life-limiting diagnosis or a serious, chronic disease.

Physicians, hospitals, health systems, affordable care organizations, insurers and facilities that embrace hospice and palliative care can experience reduced hospital admissions and readmissions, higher quality ratings and patient satisfaction scores, and improved quality of life near the end of life for patients and their families.
