Hospice Fundamentals was founded in 2009 to fill a void: a lack of expert regulatory and compliance support and experience-based implementation strategies from veterans in the field.
The answer? A unique subscription product that brings depth and breadth of knowledge, experience and common sense to hospices of all shapes and sizes. And, with subscription fees based on average daily census, finally a resource affordable even to smaller hospices.
No matter how diverse, Hospice Fundamentals subscribing hospices share a commitment to:
- Providing the highest quality care
- Building and maintaining a solid compliance framework
- Developing deep regulatory competence
The expertise of founders Susan Balfour, Roseanne Berry and Charlene Ross is complimented by consultative services provided by members of Reinhart Law’s hospice practice and other experts tapped to assist in the provision of the premier service of its kind.
Hospice Fundamentals believes that the highest quality and most cost effective care is provided by hospices whose regulatory approach is guided by three simple statements.
Known as The Principles of a Prudent Hospice™, we believe they say it all:
We exist to take care of patients and families, not to be slaves to regulations.
We are responsible for knowing the regulations & for following them.
We do nothing without knowing why we are doing it.
