Episode 38: Serious Illness Care

With our nation's aging demographics all signs point to the fact that serious illness care is going to be critically important in the not too distant future. As hospice providers, we must understand the current regulatory definition and potential implications if our community is going to become the logical providers of this type of essential care. Hear from Judi and NHPCO's new Vice President of Palliative and Advanced Care, Lori Bishop as she shares her thoughts and experience from the field at Sutter Health and UnityPoint Health. And the team gives a shout out to hospice volunteers. 

We thank the sponsor of episode 38: Optum Hospice Pharmacy Services, the leader in hospice-centric pharmacy solutions.

In light of recent clarity from CMS about the role of the medical director, Judi and Jennifer talk about responsibilities of the medical director and other hospice physicians. They point out the importance of organizational hierarchy, accurate job descriptions, and reporting structure. Surveyors are looking more closely at supervision from hospice medical directors as it remains incredibly important for all providers to make sure they are compliant.
