Why Our Hospice Software?

From scheduling and clinical documentation, to billing and quality reporting, firstHOSPICE hospice software revolutionizes the way hospices of all sizes manage their operations. Not just home health software with some hospice functionality, firstHOSPICE was built from the ground up for hospice professionals, by hospice professionals. It empowers you to strengthen your clinical, financial, and administrative processes so you can work smarter, not harder. 

firstHOSPICE Benefits:

Streamline Operations

Simply put, firstHOSPICE makes running your hospice easier. Stop wasting time dealing with a myriad of spreadsheets or managing clunky, server-based software systems -- our web-based hospice software streamlines operations and facilitates better care coordination.

Stay Compliant

Don’t stay awake at night worrying about audits or takebacks! Integrated regulatory compliance checks protect your agency from documentation errors, ensuring that you are compliant with Federal and State regulations. As hospice regulations change, our software is updated to always keep you in compliance.

Get Paid Quickly and Accurately

As reimbursement levels drop and regulations increase, it’s becoming more difficult to get paid for the services that you provide. firstHOSPICE reduces burdens on hospices associated with the billing process, improving efficiency and accuracy so you are reimbursed the right amount each and every time.

Decrease Costs

Inefficient and ineffective operations can cost your hospice dearly. Automating agency functions such as intake and admissions, scheduling, billing, and payroll with hospice software saves time and drastically reduces your overhead costs.

Increase Employee Satisfaction & Adoption

firstHOSPICE is easy to learn and use. We offer live, Web-based training seminars, online learning videos, and on-going FREE support. Your staff will thank you when they discover they can get more done in less time!

Improve Quality of Care and Patient Satisfaction

I loved this system from the first demonstration I saw! I am an old nurse that found electronic charting overwhelming. The reason I loved this software from the start is the fact that it flows like a real chart! It makes sense; the process makes sense! I also like the reports the program generates.
