Value Snapshots are brief, easy-to-digest, two-page summaries developed by palliative care researcher Kathleen Kerr and the Coalition for Compassionate Care of California, and are designed to introduce the benefits of advance care planning, palliative care or hospice to administrative leaders, non-palliative care specialists, or other healthcare system stakeholders.
Each Value Snapshot follows this simple format:
- Side 1: Evidence of the beneficial impact on patient and family outcomes
- Side 2: Evidence of the impact on utilization and cost outcomes
Visit the Facts & Figures page to download Value Snapshots for:
- Advance Care Planning
- Home-Based Palliative Care
- Hospice Care
- Inpatient Palliative Care

Value Snapshots were developed with the help and guidance of palliative care researcher Kathleen Kerr of Kerr Healthcare Analytics, and with support from the California HealthCare Foundation.
