"Attending the MVI CFO conference when I landed in the hospice world almost seven years ago was truly a gift.  Andrew and his teaching regarding benchmarking and cost accounting really struck a chord with me. Coming from a manufacturing setting prior to hospice, it seemed logical that they would also apply to healthcare.  But MVI is so much more.  I see it as similar to the multi-disciplinary model of hospice where so many pieces come together to make the whole.  Even dipping our toes into the MVI benchmarking and productivity models led our organization from an operating loss to over 14% profit.  I know this is only a small portion of what is possible with implementation of the compensation system, and I can’t wait to see the results when we get there!  It really comes down to two things, perfect visits and perfect documentation, and the way to get there is through people development.  I love the emphasis that we are ALL teachers.  MVI also has a spiritual component which is so important to me in both my professional and personal life.  The people at MVI live out their mission and their service is next to none.  If you haven’t checked them out yet, I can only say what are you waiting for?  If you want to be challenged in your thinking about what is possible, you owe it to yourself and your organization to give them a call!"
