Palliative care programs could boost hospitals’ bottom line

HealthDay/Washington Post, September 15, 2008
The aging population in the United States means hospitals are caring for an increasing number of people with serious health problems. But by using palliative care programs, hospitals can meet the needs of these patients and save money at the same time, said researchers at the National Palliative Care Research Center and the Center to Advance Palliative Care. Taking better care of these seriously ill patients can actually save hospitals more than $300 a day, according to the study.
