The Palliative model is developed by the Parkland Center for Clinical Innovation (PCCI) and funded by a grant from the Lyda Hill Foundation. The goal of the grant and the Palliative project is to develop and implement innovative solutions that improve patient care.
The model captures multiple aspects of the patient’s status and history and identifies patients who a palliative care specialists deem appropriate for inpatient or outpatient palliative consult. PCCI has partnered with the Parkland Health & Hospital System palliative care team to facilitate end of life documentation for appropriate patients. Staff can access a patient list. Follow-up actions can result in palliative consultation, referrals or documentation of care goals.
Our Comprehensive Framework & Predictive Model
Utilizing our sophisticated predictive model to proactive identify children at risk for asthma, we combined it with a comprehensive population health framework to:
Reduce asthma hospitalizations
Increase patient adherence to medication and clinic visits
Educate patients in care and self-management
PCCI’s pediatric asthma population health framework has not only reduced unnecessary utilization and costs, it has improved the healthcare experience for hundreds of pediatric patients and their parents.
