2014 Benchmarks in Palliative Care Brought to you by the Healthcare Intelligence Network www.hin.com

Palliative Care Benchmark Data - With an aging population that is living longer — an estimated 10,000 baby boomers become eligible for Medicare each day — and a shortage of specialists trained for the field, palliative care is no longer taking a back seat to more traditional healthcare. - Nearly three-fourths of 223 respondents to HIN's first annual Palliative Care survey in February 2014 said they have a palliative care program in place, and of those that don't, more than half said they planned to launch a program within 12 months. - This presentation contains highlights from those responses. © Copyright 2014 Healthcare Intelligence Network 2

- The definition of palliative care has evolved. - It is no longer intended just for the terminally ill (80%), but is also beginning to encompass those with serious illness (74%) and multiple chronic illnesses (64%) who can still benefit from quality of care and life. © Copyright 2014 Healthcare Intelligence Network 4

- Among the key components of the palliative care program is pain/symptom management (93%), with patient/caregiver education also integral, say 80% of respondents. © Copyright 2014 Healthcare Intelligence Network 5

- Following timely referrals (52%), nearly half of respondents (48 %) cited physician resistance as the key challenge to implementing a palliative care program. - Next was resource allocation (46%), reimbursement (33%) and patient buy-in (30%). © Copyright 2014 Healthcare Intelligence Network 6

- Although nearly 20% of respondents said it was too early to tell what ROI their palliative care program generated, about 88% reported an increase in patient satisfaction levels among Medicare participants, while 89% saw more satisfaction among caregivers. © Copyright 2014 Healthcare Intelligence Network 7

In Respondents’ Own Words  Most Successful Work Flows, Processes and Tools - “Palliative care nurse with a mental health/counseling background in a subacute without the need of an MD referral.” - “Interdisciplinary team; access to company-owned durable medical equipment (DME).” - “Our initial assessment tool, which determines eligibility of the patient to receive palliative care, and whether the patient’s symptoms can be managed at home or in the inpatient unit.” - “Ongoing case management.” © Copyright 2014 Healthcare Intelligence Network 8
