Miami, FL— VITAS Healthcare, the nation’s leading provider of end-of-life care, is attending the America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) Institute & Expo 2018, being held June 20-22 in San Diego, CA.

VITAS’ presence at AHIP focuses on showcasing its seamless care transitions for hospice patients to healthcare providers who wish to add an additional value to their health plans. With extensive experience in projecting disease trajectories, dealing with multiple disease states and expertise in mortality pathways, VITAS shows the value hospice can bring by educating providers in these areas.

“The deep expertise VITAS brings to insurance plans not only provides patients with exceptional, high-quality care but reduces overall healthcare costs,” said Dr. Joseph Shega, senior vice president and chief medical officer for VITAS. “We look forward to sharing the value hospice can bring to providers and hearing from other industry leaders about successful partnerships offered to patients with complex cases.”

VITAS offers personalized end-of-life care plans that improve patients’ quality of life, translating into higher CAHPS® scores and meeting multiple HEDIS® benchmarks. VITAS’ longitudinal care continuum has proven to reduce 911 calls, emergency department visits, critical care unit utilization, hospital readmissions, medication spend and length of stay.
