National Hospice Analytics:

  • Maintains the most comprehensive and up-to-date hospice database, the National Hospice Locator

Our core business is providing essential information for local, state, national, and international hospice and palliative care providers and organizations.  However, we reach far beyond the simple fee-for-service model by providing:

  • Volunteer Leadership on numerous Boards of Directors, committees, task forces, etc., committed to promoting the highest quality end-of-life care.  
  • Education through over 150 in-person presentations across 40 states - averaging 1.3 presentations / month for the past six years.
  • Intentional Low Pricing for all our services.  We believe high prices should not be a barrier for quality end-of-life providers to access the essential information we provide.

Founded in 2008, National Hospice Analytics mission is to improve hospice utilization and access to quality end-of-life care through analysis of Medicare and other national datasets.  
More than 50 percent of the State Hospice Organizations participate in National Hospice Analytics' InfoMAX Project. These State Hospice Organizations represent over 60 percent of the hospices serving over 70 percent of the hospice patients in the country.

Substantial revenue is shared with participating State Hospice Organizations.
