Did you know that our very own Executive Vice President and Founder, Dr. Mark Lewandowski, recently released a thought-provoking book called Thinking Reimagined? This book is a guide to assist you in your personal pursuit to lead hospice into an amazing and rewarding future. 

“The human capacity to continue to grow and develop mentally has no bounds outside of self-imposed limitations. Critical thinkers can become highly creative thinkers given the right tools and environmental modifications. People who doubt the value of their ideas can become real innovators within organizations and communities by simply learning how to employ their ideas into a system. Impactful ideas for growth, change and success are already in the corners of your mind waiting to be discovered.”    - Mark Lewandowski

Let's Talk?

Would you like a refresher on the hospice requirements in order to work with PDC, such as sending us Face Sheets, Medication Profiles, and patients that are no longer on service with you?

We are happy to schedule an in-service with your hospice to go over this and much more.

Throughout a 30 minute or less in-service we can cover the process of making sure PDC has all of the necessary patient information, as well as touching on Shared Work (where we post your invoices, reports, clinical guidance, and medication reviews), and PDC Reporting (a portal that allows you to run real time reports, such as your Active Patient Report, Non-Formulary Report, Delivery Report, and much more).

If you are interested in scheduling an in-service, email Taylor Bradshaw at taylor@pdcrx.com or call her at 918.516.7372.
