Let me share with you some reasons why we have the most successful home hospice startup program in the industry.
We provide a completely turnkey hospice startup program. You provide us the application information, and we do the rest. We complete all of the applications and paperwork requirements necessary to start your hospice agency. The recent and ongoing changes to licensing standards and regulatory requirements can make this part of the home hospice startup process challenging. We complete the more extensive licensing procedures needed to become a Medicare Hospice Agency. This includes the CMS required 855a Medicare Application and civil rights package.
We offer a very complete operational package. Our home hospice Policies and Procedures, Nursing Procedures, Patient Admission Packets, Personnel Files, Forms, Logs, In-Service Education Plans, Patient Teaching Guides, Committee Minutes, etc. are customized to meet your Home Hospice Agency’s needs.
Our Home Hospice Agency policy and procedure manuals are written specifically to meet your states requirements as well as meeting the requirements of Medicare and the Accrediting Body you choose (Watermarked with your Agency’s name and logo).
We offer a lifetime training program for your agency’s personnel through our Home Care University.
We work with all three home hospice Accrediting agencies.
- The Community Heath Accreditation Program
- The Accreditation Commission for Health Care
- The Joint Commission
We visit your home hospice agency several times and provide three days of personal training with our hospice registered nurse and clinical director. We visit your office to ensure you are off to a good start before your state home hospice licensure inspection occurs. We also return to do a complete audit of your agency’s operations before your Medicare Survey occurs. This ensures you’re agency’s success. In addition, our Clinicians and Licensure Experts are available to you throughout the entire process.
