Berkeley Forum's Vision for California's Healthcare System & Palliative Care

With healthcare reform, how are you going to improve patient care while saving valuable hospital resources?

Palliative care is a key strategy to making our health system better -- it's patient-centered, high quality, healthcare that uses resources effectively.

Join us for a dynamic webinar that gives you strategies for:

  • Creating the palliative care business case, and
  • Conveying how it can improve patient care.

It's the future direction of healthcare.

The Berkeley Forum -- a collaborative effort involving policy experts from the University of California at Berkeley, CEOs of major health insurers and healthcare delivery systems, and leaders from California's public sector -- produced a detailed road map to transform California's healthcare system and improve care and outcomes while saving billions of dollars in the process. Palliative care is a key part of that strategy.
