Successful, collaborative partnerships between skilled nursing facilities and hospice providers represent an important and powerful presence in post-acute care.  Together their efforts in care and service delivery result in cost savings and decreased re-hospitalizations.  More importantly, these efforts result in terminally ill people experiencing quality, compassionate end-of-life care.  This webinar will explore the benefits of hospice and skilled nursing facility partnerships, explain the interface necessary between the hospice and skilled nursing facility teams, and provide operational guidance for regulatory compliance.
