Kick off the New Year by making it easy for everyone in your health system to understand the benefits of advance care planning, palliative care, and hospice.
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

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.
