How do you handle that referral? Do you truly understand, in a measurable and quantifiable way, how well your intake, pending and admission processes are working? Do you appropriately utilize all of your agencies resources in the pursuit of helping that patient and family access hospice? What are the most common pitfalls in the referral, eligibility, pending admission and admission processes? How do you track, trend and use performance improvement processes to ensure that your eligibility determination process is unbiased?

Your intake, inquiry/referral to admission process is crucial to the success of your hospice. Having the correct answers to these questions will enable you to be confident in your processes and Hospice Advisors will give you the tools you need to measure your program’s success and ensure that your agency is not leaving any eligible patients and families behind.
Program Objectives & Highlights:
- Before you arrive, you will have the option to share some basic agency data with Hospice Advisors, so we can analyze for pitfalls. You will also apply your data throughout our admission logistics intensive. This makes our time together highly productive and sends you home with real tools and solutions for your agency.
- Learn the “Right Questions” to ask to ensure that your initial patient evaluation is global and not totally focused on a “knee jerk” decision on terminality and/or diagnosis.
- Be able to diagnose and understand the risk of “single point of failure” and unchecked group think processes that almost all hospices make throughout the referral to admission process.
- Establish a team of strong and active medical directors…sorry, but hospice does not belong just to nurses.
- Identify crucial metrics and learn how to create dashboards that truly inform, drive meaningful and insightful data for action, and help you reach your census growth goals.
- Incorporate into your own process the steps required to not delay an admission.
- Progressive Care Programs: explore this new phenomenon and define your perspective. Every hospice regardless of size and finances should be working with these complex patients.
- Optimize the use of your integrated clinical and operational resources related to referral, pending and admissions.
- Refine how you work, track and measure your pending patient list in a way that exacts the same level of detail as your plan of care – learn the team method, not the single person process.
