Has a healthcare professional with over 14 years of experience I have the opportunity to work with dozens of healthcare apps and I have to say hands down this app stands alone with its functionality and education. Highly recommend!!

The VITAS app is a great resource for both, the community at large and for healthcare professionals! It clearly defines the benefits to receiving VITAS services and the criteria for each diagnosis. It is very clear and concise! Great tool!
