Evaluating & Planning for Discharge

Every hospice faces challenges when a patient’s continued eligibility becomes unclear. Simultaneous functions are underway, including providing care, eligibility assessment, and consideration of possible discharge planning. Without a clear process, the situation quickly becomes muddled. How can you accomplish it all, meet the patient/family needs, and preserve payment? This webinar will explore those issues and provide a helpful tool to guide you through the process.
