In this podcast, Chris interviews Dr. Katy Lanz, Founder and Principal of TopSight Partners, a boutique advisory innovation partner specializing in home care.  Together, they delve into the future of hospice care, discussing the exciting possibilities for innovation and collaboration within the industry.




During the podcast, they explore the concept of geriatric crisis care and the importance of personalized care pathways.  They also touch on the challenges of integrating hospice into insurance company models.  Dr. Lanz highlights the future of serious illness care, emphasizing the importance of healthcare providers thinking creatively and developing tailored products and services to meet patient needs.

Dr. Lanz concludes by speaking directly to bedside team members, encouraging them to actively participate in decision-making processes and collaborate with their organization and others to develop comprehensive solutions.  She envisions a future where healthcare providers come together to deliver high-quality, patient-centered care.

Following this discussion, Chris and Dr. Lanz provide an addendum in response to the unexpected announcement by CMMI (Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation) on March 4, 2024, regarding the termination of the VBID (Value-Based Insurance Design) demonstration for the hospice carve-in at the year's end.  They explore the implications of this decision and the future of hospice care, considering the challenges posed by the pending Medicare trust fund insolvency.

Dr. Lanz suggests that hospices prepare for the future by innovating with upstream products addressing functional, nutritional, and cognitive decline, also stressing the importance of establishing relationships with payviders and health plans.

This podcast is a must-listen for staff, leaders, and board members within hospice and palliative care organizations, providing a deep dive into knowledge enhancement, skill sharpening, and better preparation to address the needs of patients and communities.  It serves as a valuable tool that empowers listeners to make well-informed decisions, nurture innovation, and ultimately, create a significant impact in the lives of those they care for.
