National Hospice Cooperative is a not-for-profit corporation that is directly affiliated with Ohio’s Hospice. It’s mission and purpose is to provide administrative and indirect services (Mission Support Services) to not-for-profit hospice and palliative care organizations who choose to participate.
The intention is to:
Maximize financial and process efficiencies in the administrative and indirect services side of the hospice and palliative care business model so those dollars can be utilized to support direct patient care activities.
The goal is to:
Grow the number of hospices working directly through NHC and OHI to:
- Increase the volume and scale of the elements that make up a service
- Reduce the expense of such services through economies of scale and joint purchasing power;
- Reduce administrative burden on these organizations; and
- Increase available dollars for direct patient care for all participating providers as well as OHI.
