Hospice News recently sat down with Acadian Health Director Benjamin Swig to discuss how hospices can bridge communication and connection gaps among caregivers through collaborations with in-home acute and urgent care providers.

“At first, our existing customers were largely on the ambulance side. We then began to see value in identifying other types of health partners – especially hospices. There was a heavy need for additional support around end-of-life care in the home. We learned from having conversations with patients and their families that symptoms managed within the home really helped reduce hospitalizations and also hospice revocations.”
