Care Delivery Process

Palliametrics supports all phases of palliative care care delivery, capturing and displaying data to help Interdisciplinary Team (IDT) members optimize their time spent and prioritize patients. See in the diagram below how Palliametrics’ Active and Inactive Care Statuses help visualize where patients are within their care episodes and how their episodes ended. Contact us today for a live demo of how status tracking works in real time.
