Improving Length of Stay

This webinar is presented by Curaport


There is a myth in the Post-Acute Care market that Hospice agencies have less to worry about than their Home Health brethren.  This is false.  One area of constant struggle for Hospice agencies is improving their patients’ Length of Stay.  This webinar will teach how to use your data to increase your hospice’s length of stay while promoting early referrals and ensuring your patients receive the maximum benefit.

Education Overview

Lance E. Danko, MSM, RHIA will be leading this education session on how to analyze your hospice’s length of stay data in comparison with the latest statistics to identify opportunities to facilitate earlier referrals and develop strategies to improve.  Increased length of stay has been shown to improve patient/family satisfaction while receiving the maximum benefit. 

Learning objectives for this webinar are:

  • Know the current hospice facts and statistics related to length of stay.
  • Taking a deep dive into your length of stay data.
  • What impacts your length of stay and various strategies can you employ to improve it.
