Carepointe®’s Palliative Bridge Program (PBP) is an extension of its Intensive Case Management services to provide a higher level of care for members with irreversible illness.  The program functions as a concurrent care model and coordinated with the member’s primary care physician.   The overall goal of the PBP is to reduce unnecessary hospitalizations and ER utilization while managing the transition to hospice services.

PBP offers in-home multidisciplinary clinical support for members and their families while constantly assessing and documenting disease progression.  The program places an emphasis on “comfort” care, managing medication requirements, and helping to facilitate advanced illness planning.
