Serving as advocates for daily issues that affect and enhance home health and hospice agencies, the Association aims to be not only a repository of information for solutions to common challenges these provider face, but also to facilitate education, training, and best practice strategies to promote quality care and precise implementation of regulations and guidelines.
We conduct quarterly meetings by inviting recognized leaders in the field to further educate on current topics and changes with home health and hospice guidelines.
One goal in our strategy to promote the sharing of ideas will be an annual conference and awards ceremony to recognize the most valuable and innovative home health and hospice providers, employees, and ideas.
Along with goals of providing information services, our organization will actively look to provide home health solutions for refugees and other uninsured patients. Plans include offering, clinical, dietary, and hygiene education facilitated by our professional staff. A critical component of the Associations success is to focus on patients who are not eligible to receive Medicaid, Medicare, or other government assistance.
While the challenges regarding appropriate and sufficient health care staff have been well documented, the Association will be active to address these concerns by providing educational assistance for potential nurses, home health aides, and hospice care givers. We will focus our efforts in this particular initiative on sponsoring qualified students by providing tuition expenses and assistance with other education related costs.
As an alternative to skyrocketing training and certification costs for administrators and nurses, the Association will aim to provide funded or discounted classes for health professionals needing to obtain CEU’s and State required “clock hours”.
In compliance with State regulations regarding language interpretation for health providers, the Association will assist in providing qualified Sign and Language Interpreters of various nationalities and ethnicities. This facet of our business plan is essential in addressing the needs of communities with large refugee or immigrant populations.
