Value to the Medical Home
The Palliative Illness Management™ (PIM)™ solution supports patient centered medical home goals and acts as a natural extension of primary treating physician offices. The PIM™ community-based palliative care teams focus on improving patient / caregiver / provider communication, while establishing goals of care, identifying gaps in care, and minimizing chances of unplanned care. Working with physicians to achieve medical home goals, palliative care teams help avoid over-medicalization and allow patients to age at home. This home-based collaborative model builds stronger physician/patient relationships, while improving reach and frequency of patient and caregiver engagement.
