Hospitals and health systems rely on government programs like Medicaid and invest in charity care to help vulnerable patients facing cancer and other complex diseases afford high treatment costs. As one of the last unmined opportunities to reduce patient financial distress and expand access to care, philanthropic aid offers over $30B every year from 20,000+ patient assistance and social support programs. However, to relieve patient burden, providers must navigate program complexities, internal coordination, and resource challenges to secure this aid. Join this webinar to explore the impact of financial toxicity on patients, philanthropic aid as a strategic initiative, and best practices to improve outcomes and reduce costs for your organization.

Learning Objectives:
  • Understand the untapped opportunity in philanthropic medical financial aid for patients and providers
  • Overcome challenges and complexities to scale patient assistance programs and bring more value to your organization and community
  • Optimize your patient assistance program with best practices in data, workflow, and technology
