2019 Year-End Review
As 2019 draws to a close, we would like to take a moment to thank all of our members for their commitment to home care and hospice. This year has been one filled with immense change for our industry and over the past 12 months, the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) has taken significant strides to ensure health care in the home remains at the forefront.
At NAHC, we’ve set the bar high and we plan to continue building that momentum in 2020. We are excited about our accomplishments this year and just wanted to share a few of them with you.
- In Washington, our advocacy efforts have led to a reduction in the PDGM behavioral adjustment, given more power to therapy assistants, reduced in place of care requirements, increased the 2020 Medicare home health 30-day unit base rate, and more;
- We offered a record-number of educational programs including 40 highly informative webinars, 2 extremely well-attended national conferences, 12 regional PDGM Summits held across the country that prepared more than 3,000 home health leaders for the biggest change to the home health payment model in two decades;
- Despite industry consolidations, our membership is the strongest it has been in years and we are already on track to see exponential growth in 2020;
- Through our grassroots advocacy efforts we’ve equipped thousands of home care and hospice leaders, staff, patients and their families with the tools they need to be able to speak to their elected officials and serve as advocates for their community;
- We’ve even ramped up our email, digital, and social media marketing efforts to provide timely updates to our members while increasing awareness of NAHC and all that we are doing for the industry.
We owe all of our success to our members and we could not have done it without your support.
