PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y., Oct. 16, 2017 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — RingBoost, a premier national provider of enhanced telecom services, today announced that Ascend Hospice has joined its 1-800-HOSPICE™ network. 1-800-HOSPICE™ is a national network of hospices that make use of the premium phone number services offered by RingBoost and share marketing services, including listings in the network’s AIDEFINDER directory. Ascend has secured the exclusive rights to use the 1-800-HOSPICE marketing phone number in New Jersey and Massachusetts.

“Hospices continue to see the benefits of joining the 1-800-HOSPICE network to maintain a vital presence in their communities,” said 1-800-HOSPICE™ business development director Christophe Adrien. “Using advanced telephone communications tools and utilizing the most memorable phone number in the field is the most effective way for a hospice to establish and maintain community outreach programs.”

A recent study, conducted by researchers for MJHS Institute for Innovation in Palliative Care in New York, found that 60 percent of hospice enrollments occurred through telephone outreach alone, compared with around 40 percent who enrolled after being referred through a community-based specialist palliative care program. Of those referred to hospice through a community-based program, more than half enrolled following a phone call. View the study at:

A second unrelated study, published in the International Journal of Palliative Nursing, found that through the use of an 1-800-HOSPICE phone number service in Australia, end-of-life patients were able to reduce ambulance contact and emergency department admission, and increase their likelihood of dying at home (for patients whose preference was to die at home).

1-800-HOSPICE has proven itself to be an invaluable tool to help increase patient care satisfaction at the end of life, particularly when services are offered in the home.
