JourneyCare leaders to ignite innovations in hospice, palliative and serious illness care at NHPI Summit

JourneyCare top leadership will headline several strategic sessions when more than 200 nonprofit hospice, palliative care and advanced illness care providers from across the country come together to showcase care delivery innovations at the second annual National Partnership for Hospice Innovation (NPHI) 2018 Summit Oct. 30- Nov. 1 in Chicago.

As hospices and healthcare organizations across the country observe National Hospice and Palliative Care Month in November, Sarah Boburka, President and CEO of JourneyCare will welcome attendees to the week-long conversations around care innovation. As the official Host City for the summit, JourneyCare also will host a smaller forum for healthcare executives on Friday and conduct tours of its Glenview campus, which includes a state-of-the-art inpatient Hospice CareCenter.

“We are thrilled that JourneyCare will play a key role in this prestigious industry-wide event, especially as we celebrate National Hospice and Palliative Care Month” says Boburka.

Tom Koutsoumpas, President and CEO NPHI, says “We’re very thrilled to be in Chicago for our second annual summit and grateful to JourneyCare for hosting leaders from non-profits across the country who will share their best practices and create fresh new ideas for caring for patients and families.”

NPHI members, which include JourneyCare, work to fundamentally change how people and institutions think about the last stages of life and serious illness through the organization’s mission to “lead the movement of hospice, palliative and advanced illness care through innovation and collaboration.”

The annual summit provides an opportunity for attendees to learn the latest information, explore new ideas, and validate best practices to make an impact on how this care is delivered.

On Wednesday, Mary Pat Scoltock, Chief Strategy Officer, JourneyCare will be among the experts on a panel at 9 a.m. to discuss ACO (Accountable Care Organization) Experience; and at 11 a.m. Kelly Fischer, JourneyCare Chief Operating Officer, will present on a panel discussing Implementation of Home-Based Primary Care.
