Moments of Impact: Family Caregiving After Hospital Discharge

Friends and family are the hidden workforce that support members and patients after a hospitalization. Healthcare organizations depend on them to manage appointments and meds, coordinate care, provide hands-on care and recognize red flags. They navigate all the twists and turns that come with recovery.

Ensuring they are supported and resilient is an often overlooked opportunity for health plans to improve member experience and reduce cost of care. In this webinar discussion, we provide attendees with:

  • A rich understanding of the challenges that family caregivers face in this circumstance
  • Focused insight on the impact that family caregivers have for health plans
  • Considerations for engaging family caregivers and program design
