For Physicians

As a care model funded largely through Medicare and Medicaid, we support the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ triple aim and alternative payment models. Our board-certified medical directors can also help physicians meet graduate medical education requirements.

For Senior Living Communities

As innovators of the hospice discipline and Medicare benefit, we are experts in state and federal laws pertaining to hospice in senior living communities and support our partners with relevant educational materials, as well as state survey assistance. We also offer support to dementia patients with a evidence-based, proprietary care protocol that reduces use of antipsychotics.
