“Teams of healthcare providers who review their performance measures are able to make adjustments in care, share successes, and probe for causes when progress comes up short — all on the road to improved patient outcomes.”

Improve Service Delivery

Palliametrics is a real-time, Internet-accessible solution, which means your data is always current and actionable. In addition, your palliative care program will have relevant, point-of-care data to drive improvement in your service delivery model.

Improved data quality

Your data is more likely to be more accurate and complete when Interdisciplinary Team (IDT) members don’t have to spend time recording information on paper and transferring it later.


Better operational insights

Real-time data capture allows program administrators to identify care delays and other deviations from preferred operating criteria using either the built-in data analytics or the operations dashboard.
