Vendor Short List

We often get requests from Hospices for names of experts in areas outside the scope of MVI, including patient-management vendors, service organizations, consultants, utility software, and other Hospice-focused entities. Here is our “short list" of experts that we recommend to our clients. An individual or organization does not get on the Short List unless they have demonstrated excellence in customer service and quality of services. Here is our list of our most trusted individuals and companies that truly can help a Hospice in their respective areas of expertise:

Wise Hospice Options - Grant Faubion

A pharmacy benefit manager (PBM Network) designed specifically for Hospice to improve drug utilization and reduce costs. Grant is a "boutique" pharmacy vendor and does not desire to serve every Hospice. In addition Grant is an expert in DME and Medical Supplies and will review a Hospice's DME and Medical Supply costs for no charge.
