The unsustainable growth of healthcare costs has precipitated the need for significant reforms in healthcare with a focus on shifting from volume to value. Value-based care is evidence-based care that helps patients improve their health, reduce the effects from chronic diseases, and live healthier lives. The Institute of Medicine (IOM) report, Dying in America: Improving Quality and Honoring Individual Preferences Near the End of Life, detailed several recommendations to improve care through the provision of palliative care. Palliative care is conducted by an interdisciplinary team and, in addition to addressing bio-psycho-socio-spiritual concerns, facilitates the alignment of patient preferences with healthcare delivery and minimizes under- and overtreatment. This chapter explores key opportunities aligned with the IOM’s report that recommend nurses and the healthcare team facilitate the incorporation of palliative care and execution and the adoption of a value-based care delivery model.
