The ideal partner is a healthcare thought leader that supports current and future clinical professionals through education to ensure a higher quality of care for patients now and in generations to come.
Leveraging our partnerships with eReferral platforms, VITAS utilizes live data feeds and evidence-based protocols to improve care coordination, expedite digital referrals, and ensure timely transitions to end-of-life care, whether in your hospital or the patient’s preferred setting.
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.
As innovators of the hospice discipline and Medicare benefit, we are experts in state and federal laws pertaining to hospice in LTCFs 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.

“I want to thank VITAS from the bottom of my heart for the excellent and compassionate care they provided my brother-in-law. I am a physician and have been referring patients to hospice for 40 years, but this is the first time I experienced the service firsthand. All of the staff was very professional and incredibly sensitive and compassionate.”
