Early November in Washington state is a beauty to behold. Tammy Norville, NOSORH Technical Assistance Director, had the opportunity to partner with the Washington State Office of Rural Health to provide a half-day interdisciplinary team education session grounded in palliative care services. The live session was on location in Dayton, Washington, and simulcast to Critical Access Hospitals (CAH) and other partners around the state.
The session was a journey through the revenue cycle and explored options to ensure the sustainability of palliative care services in an environment with no straightforward payment structure while continuing to transition to value. A lunch session with the host organization and an onsite visit with one CAH rounded out the visit.
The top three takeaways from the experience:
Thank you to the Washington SORH team of Pat Justis, Lindy Vincent, and Kassie Clarke, who coordinated the event and was an outstanding tour guide.
