Members of the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) will see enhancements to their Legislative Action Network (LAN) because of a partnership between NAHC and Phone2Action, a digital grassroots platform that will make it easy for NAHC members to connect with elected officials and take action on issues that matter to home care and hospice providers via social media platforms.
Today, 90 percent of Americans own a cellphone, and Phone2Action places social action at advocates’ fingertips via these mobile devices by pushing notifications of action alerts directly to their connected devices. NAHC members will be using the tools to amplify their voices and reach elected officials via email, Twitter, Facebook, and phone calls.
At NAHC’s Annual Meeting this year in Phoenix, AZ, NAHC leadership completed a live call-to-action demonstration by engaging its members to take action from their mobile phones in support of home care and hospice services. Attendees sent hundreds of emails, tweets, and Facebook posts to officials in support of legislation that would improve the delivery of home care services.
NAHC spearheaded its social advocacy effort by launching its nurse practitioner campaign to gain support for the Home Health Care Planning Improvement Act of 2013, which has been introduced in both the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate. NAHC’s grassroots campaigns are critical in gathering support for this and other legislation that is important to home health care. NAHC encourages health care providers, caregivers, patients and all interested parties to participate in these grassroots campaigns.
NAHC is preparing to launch its first Day of Action utilizing the power of the Phone2Action platform on Wednesday, November 19. NAHC encourages its members to join hundreds of other social media advocates during NAHC’s Social Media Advocacy Day to ask members of Congress to act now to support the Home Health Care Planning Improvement Act.
