What Hospice Board Members Should Know About Sales and Marketing
Hospice board members should be knowledgeable enough to ensure that an effective marketing and sales plan is in place, but not meddle in operational decision-making. In this Hospice Governance Academy Spotlight Interview, Bill Musick, President of Integriti3D, talks with Stan Massey, Partner and Chief Branding Officer at Transcend Strategy Group, and Mike Ferris, Managing Partner of Healthcare Strategica. They focus on what hospice board members should know and focus on in the boardroom when it comes to sales and marketing. Login to HGA to view all three interview segments.
New Payment Models: Medicare Advantage and the Value-Based Insurance Design Demonstration
Medicare Advantage health plans are rapidly increasing their share of the Medicare beneficiary market. While hospice has historically been carved out of Medicare Advantage, recent changes allow Medicare Advantage plans greater flexibility to provide palliative care and to begin covering hospice under Medicare Advantage plans.
This is Segment 1 of 3 in a Spotlight Interview Series with Mollie Gurian, Director of Hospice, Palliative, and Home Health Policy at LeadingAge. Learn about moves under the Value Based Insurance Design model, VBID, to cover hospice services directly in Medicare Advantage.
Finally, hospice-focused board development
The Hospice Governance Academy was created to provide industry-specific content directly to hospice leaders. HGA is an easy, online learning platform that ensures your board has a shared base of core hospice governance knowledge and up-to-date information on trends and issues facing hospice care today. Content is contributed regularly by industry-recognized experts.
