With governmental scrutiny on the rise, how can hospices keep their doors open and ensure high quality care and compliance, while managing daily operations? Hospice agencies may also be fearful that an audit will result from submitting a claim for a higher level of care. The ability for hospices to demonstrate quality care with complete documentation is key.
