The AHA and Center to Advance Palliative Care this week announced a strategic partnership to develop and disseminate training and other resources to help health care providers expand access to palliative care and adopt a population health approach to improve care for patients with serious illness. The resources will align with value-based payment models and focus on patient identification; care pathways tailored to the needs of patients with serious illnesses; seamless care delivery across care settings; improved communication; and pain-and-symptom management training. “Our partnership with CAPC and strategic use of our combined expertise, resources and influence will improve the overall care of people with serious illness by creating a more personalized approach to care, ” said Jay Bhatt, D.O., AHA senior vice president and chief medical officer. “It acknowledges the importance of people getting the right care, at the right time, in the right setting from the right caregiver.”
