Discover how you can leverage the HGSS survey to advance your bereavement services program.

Valuable insights to advance bereavement services

Bereavement services are crucial in easing the pain after the loss of a loved one. To best serve your clients, it’s important that you truly understand the impact of your services. A good first step is to measure and benchmark satisfaction with your services using a bereavement service satisfaction survey like the HEALTHCAREfirst Hospice Grief Support Services (HGSS) survey. Adapted from National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization’s (NHPCO) Evaluation of Grief Support Services survey, HGSS delivers valuable insights to advance your bereavement services and best serve your clients.

Improve bereavement services

By leveraging a bereavement satisfaction survey, you can apply a data-driven management approach to your bereavement services program. At HEALTHCAREfirst, we manage the entire survey administration process and deliver results through comprehensive dashboards and reports. We do the heavy lifting, so you can focus your time and efforts on improving services and supporting your clients.

Valuable insights

Capturing data alone doesn’t provide the insights needed to truly understand satisfaction with your bereavement services program. Our HGSS survey program doesn’t just deliver valuable data. Instead, we take it further by providing detailed analysis, benchmarking, and actionable insights so you can focus your efforts on what matters most – putting your clients first.

Superior care and support

By utilizing HGSS, you’ll be empowered to provide superior services and support to your bereavement clients. Through implementing a data-driven bereavement program, you can focus on areas of success and opportunities for improvement to best serve your clients.
