Innovate. Advocate. Collaborate.
Who We Are
The National Partnership for Healthcare and Hospice Innovation (NPHI) is a collaborative of not-for-profit, community-integrated, safety-net, hospice and palliative care providers dedicated to ensuring patients and their families have access to care that reflects their individual goals, values and preferences. Our commitment to our patients is at the bedside, not the boardroom.
Representing providers across the nation, NPHI and its members help design more innovative and effective models of care, advocate for comprehensive and community-integrated care customized to meet each person’s unique needs, and build collaboration between national thought leaders, decision-makers, and other healthcare stakeholders to improve hospice care.
The Difference We Make
NPHI members work to fundamentally change how people and institutions think about the last stages of life. We are experts in managing serious illness and end-of-life care. Our commitment is to help patients and their families experience the end-of-life consistent with their goals, values, and preferences.
NPHI is committed to person-centered advanced illness care to ensure individuals can take control of their life and focus on quality and comfort. We work tirelessly to define the standard of hospice care and guide patients and families through the final stages of life, providing assurance about the right things to do.
We are distinguished by our commitment to people and mission – our innovations are driven by patient and family needs, not profit. Our voice resonates with key decision makers and stakeholders in health care as well as in the communities we serve… to help people live as well as possible until they die.
NPHI is creating, showcasing and replicating innovations in hospice to improve the end-of-life care experience. Each of the NPHI member programs are not-for-profit leaders in health care delivery and have spent decades providing high quality care to seriously ill patients within the communities they serve.
Their results have transformed the patient experience through the design and leadership of more effective and comprehensive models of care. Building upon their expertise, our members are working together to showcase and recreate their success to address the needs of Americans with serious illness.
