Kinnser Hospice® software was built in collaboration with hospices and knowledgeable consultants who understand the challenges hospices face every day. Our goal was to develop hospice software that aligned with real world processes, but also made team members more efficient. The result is a comprehensive, integrated point-of-care and back-office software solution that is intuitive, clear, and hassle free. Here are some of the reasons hospices love our software.
