Hospice Reporting and Information
and End-of-Life Care

Annually, hospices licensed in Florida report demographic and outcome measures data to the Florida Department of Elder Affairs. The Department makes this data available to the public. Instructions on how to submit or access this information are below. In addition, links to websites that offer useful information about end-of-life and hospice care are provided on the left.

WHAT IS HOSPICE? Hospice provides special care for people who are near the end of life and for their families, either at home, in freestanding facilities or within hospitals. Hospice care provides palliative care, which does not cure the disease or condition but relieves the patient of discomfort. The goal of hospice is to give emotional, medical and spiritual care to the dying and their loved ones.

Hospice Data Submission

Hospice data is submitted annually via an online form. Access to the secure, web-based form requires an ID and password. Contact Abbie Messer at the Department of Elder Affairs at 850-414-2105 to obtain an ID or if you are having problems accessing the form.
