Tools for Rural Hospice and Palliative Care
Rural palliative and hospice is difficult. With patients spread out over a large geographic region, your care team may spend more time in the car in between patients than they actually spend with the patients. This presents two fundamental problems for rural hospices.
Honey, Let Me Tell You About INVU
I’m not going to be cool about this. How about I just blurt this out with a nifty table below. We have a solution to these problems with INVU!
|Objective||The Norm||With INVU|
|Expansion / Growth||Modest, incremental growth based on recommendations||Serve more patients, expand your reach|
|Providing Care to Patients||
|Following up with Family||
|Reimbursements||Carve-in undermines your profitability and your ability to run a strong company.||Maximize Reimbursements|
|Billing Codes||Shortage of providers, far enough distance away to qualify (higher reimbursements.)|
So What is INVU?
So you are on our website, so feel free to click around. But essentially we are a communications platform for healthcare providers. We have created cool apps to help everyone involved in care (patient, family, and your care team) stay connected.
What about In-Person Touches?
I am going to finish with this because this was very very important to my hospice. My hospice grew significantly over 5 years, and I can credit much of that success to our in-person touches that separated us from the rest. So let me yell this from the rooftops–telemedicine should never replace in-person care! Telemedicine exists only to enhance in-person care. Patients and families appreciate the video calls, they love the updates to the family app, and when your nurse arrives in a family’s home, they are equipped for a quality checkup.
