Things like additional transitional care services, more robust palliative services before someone becomes eligible for hospice, greater continuity of care and smoother transitions, and greater coordination for the provider are all things that we think can be accomplished through the demo. It will eliminate some of the hard, sort of bright-line handoffs that occur today.”
