The Center to Advance Palliative Care (CAPC) provides training, tools and technical assistance to both payers and providers as they seek to improve the care of those with serious illness. Palliative care is one of the best opportunities to simultaneously improve quality, satisfaction and cost effectiveness, and CAPC’s mission is to ensure access to high-quality palliative care for all whom would benefit.
CAPC has two goals concerning alternative payment models:
a) to help risk-bearing entities incorporate palliative care into episode- and population-based models; and
b) to help palliative care providers secure alternative payments arrangements that support their work.
Specifically, CAPC aims to disseminate publications and presentations on best practices of palliative care in risk-based care delivery, along with training community-based palliative care programs in APM contracting.
