August 22, 2017

Trinity Health is mentioned in the latest national brief, Serious Illness Strategies for  Driving Better Value and Quality of Life for High-Risk Populations,  from The Center to Advance Palliative Care (CAPC), the nation’s leading resource for palliative care development and growth. They are a national organization dedicated to increasing access to quality palliative care services for people facing serious illness.

CAPC recognized Trinity Health as one of a growing number of health plans and health systems adopting new serious illness strategies in partnership with both their network providers and their members that demonstrate that it’s both better medicine and better economics to change the approach to serious illness care.

Trinity Health's 2014 Innovation Grant,  Community Advanced Illness Management: Palliative Care in Population Health, helped fund and develop the groundbreaking work that received this prestigious recognition.   The CAPC report can be found at here.  For more information about palliative care at Trinity Health, please contact Lori Yosick at  lyosick@trinity-health.org .
