On-Demand Webinar

Reducing Hospitalizations for Palliative Care Patients


As a part of their mission to strive for patient-centered excellence, Shannon Health utilizes PeraHealth’s Rothman Index (RI) patient surveillance platform to support their patients’ needs for palliative care services.

Dr. Hitchcock and her team routinely share the PeraHealth scores and graphs with  patients and their families to visualize gradual ongoing deterioration, helping them to better understand the condition of their loved one. Often, this is difficult for the family to perceive which complicates palliative care decision making, however “being able to see graphs for multiple visits with a continually lowering score and trajectory paints a comprehensive picture of health” per Dr. Hitchcock.

During this interview style webinar, Dr. Linda Hitchcock and Tiffany Nunez will provide an overview of Shannon Health, detailing the challenges they face within palliative care.  They then will discuss how utilization of PeraHealth solutions allows them to be more efficient and effective, providing specific patient examples of its impact.
