Typically known as Palitave Care (though some organizations have renamed the care as Advanced Illness Management or Advance Chronic Illness Care) are all forms of non-hospice care for those who have advanced chronic diseases and are more likely to be readmitted to the hospital shortly after discharge. The case management, monitoring and attention to the patient’s needs/barriers and goals has shown the ability to improve quality and even quantity of life without frequent returns to in patient hospital care.
