Thank you for being on the front lines in fighting COVID-19.

Thank you for taking care of the most vulnerable in our community.

Thank you for sacrificing time at home to ensure we are safe.

We’ve been in the hospice industry for over 30 years. Hospice organizations have always handled extremely delicate, often stressful situations with care and grace.



COVID-19 Guidance for Hospice


Regulations are Changing Quickly

As the pandemic unfolds, regulations are changing quickly. Below are some quick links to the latest federal guidance for hospice and healthcare organizations. 


CMS Guidance for Hospice

NHPCO Compiled Resources

World Health Organization Guidance on Diagnostic Codes

OSHA Guidance on Workplace Safety 

CDC Resources for Patients and Families



    Software Tools For Patient and Family Care 

    Staying Connected with Caregivers

    Easy access to caregiver communication preferences, helps hospices keep patients and families informed in this time when connection is critical. 


    Diagnosing Patients Accurately

    Hummingbird has the symptom diagnosis codes for COVID-19 built-in, so clinicians can include them in their normal visits to a patient. 

    Telehealth Fee-For-Service (FFS)

    In the midst of the outbreak, hospices are turning to telehealth to treat patients and families. Documenting the Medicare FFS Telemedicine Physician Service Codes is crucial as telehealth becomes more common. Hummingbird includes all of the Medicare FFS Telemedicine service codes. And, Hummingbird makes it easy to update a patient’s plan of care to reflect the need for telehealth visits.
