Aetna's Compassionate Care Program, a case management program that specifically targets patients with advanced illness, has had an enormous impact on the number of inpatient stays, average length of stay, emergency room visits, ICU days and hospice selection rate for the patients it serves, according to a study published in the Journal of Palliative Medicine.

During Advanced Illness Care Coordination: A Case Study on Aetna's Compassionate Care Program, a 45-minute webinar on June 13, 2012, Dr. Joseph Agostini, senior medical director, Aetna Medicare, will share the key features of the Compassionate Care Program at Aetna, along with the impact the program has had on healthcare utilization and quality outcomes.
