New Orleans, LA, September 16, 2009 --(PR.com)-- mumms® Software has announced that significant leaders from the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) will speak at the MUMMS 20 Conference in New Orleans this October. These featured guests from NHPCO include Dr. Donald Schumacher, President, Malene Davis, Former Chairperson, and Kavin Cartmell, Member of the Board of Directors. Each of these guests is extremely influential in the industry and serves as a representative to the United States government on behalf of hospice.

At the conference, Dr. Schumacher’s topic will be “Hospice Industry Moving Forward: Health Care Reform and Hospice in 2009 and Beyond”, while Malene Davis’ session will be titled “Hospice: Surviving to Serve Another Day”. Both of these presentations will focus on the current challenges facing our industry, as well as the actions needed to further the mission of hospice in the future. Kavin Cartmell will be discussing “Work Smarter, Not Harder: Concepts of Third Party Interfaces” which will address technology as a major factor in the future of the industry. Not only will these guests be speaking during conference sessions, they will also be available to network with attendees about the most prominent issues facing the hospice community today. This is a unique opportunity to listen to those who represent hospice at a national level and for the voices to be heard of individual hospices that attend the conference.

In addition, mumms® is thrilled to have the very talented and well-known photographer and co-author of Tea with Elisabeth, Ken Ross.
