HIPAA Compliant Hospice Volunteer Reporting -- Easy to Use & Very Secure
Over the last 10 years HVA's Patient Data Vault program has been revolutionizing the way volunteer programs are managed. Click here to read what Volunteer Coordinators and managers are saying about the program. This exclusive member-only subscription service currently has over 4,000 active users, has successfully processed over 275,000 patient visit forms for our member hospices and currently manages over 30,000 patients for those hospices. You and your volunteers will enjoy the convenience of being able to communicate about, coordinate, report on and access information for their patient assignments via the Internet 24/7.
Participating hospices are finding many advantages to the PDV Service. This LOW COST service (monthly cost per volunteer is less than the cost of a cup of coffee) has numerous cost savings for our member hospices, eases management of their hospice volunteer program and improves the communication efficiency of complex coordination tasks while meeting the strict requirements of the HIPAA Privacy Rule.
