Hospitals and Health Systems
We understand your two-fold objective: maintaining high standards of patient care and retaining your full Medicare reimbursement.
As a hospice leader and innovator, VITAS works with physicians to bring our services to your patients when they need us most—near the end of life.
Physicians and organizations with capitated patient populations benefit in a variety of ways from utilizing hospice care for appropriate patients at the end of life.
The same compassionate hospice care that VITAS provides in patients’ private homes is also provided to residents of nursing facilities (NF).
Assisted Living Facilities
The same compassionate hospice care that VITAS provides in patients’ private homes is also provided to residents of assisted living facilities (ALFs).
Health Plans and Private Insurers
VITAS Healthcare helps health plans and private insurance groups mitigate financial risk by improving outcomes and boosting the value of care.
Accountable Care Organizations
VITAS helps our ACO partners identify and manage advanced illness, smoothly transitioning patients to the appropriate non-acute care setting.
Home Healthcare Agencies
There are many misconceptions about the role, timing, referral process and payment for hospice for patients receiving home healthcare. VITAS partners with private and Medicare home health agencies.
Interoperability for Streamlined Hospice Referrals
At VITAS Healthcare, we've developed the first live, two-way hospice referral system of its kind, designed to interface with your hospital or health system's EMR. Learn how these efficiencies can help you and your patients.
Alternative Payment Models
A VITAS partnership is particularly beneficial for alternative payment model (APM) participants whose populations include high-risk patients. Usually, these are costly patients with complex diseases, and multiple comorbidities or conditions that are not optimally managed.
BPCI Advanced Participants
We help mitigate your organization’s risk by improving longitudinal care coordination and quality while reducing per-beneficiary spending.
