ICHC Chair participates in NAHC 2.0 strategic planning
(HH, H)
Last August the executive committee of the Board of Directors of the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) announced the beginning of a comprehensive strategic planning process to evaluate the needs of the home care and hospice communities, the role that NAHC has played for the past 35 years in representing home care and hospice, and what the future may hold for home care and hospice. The goal of this project is to design and develop the next generation of NAHC. This crucial undertaking quickly became known as Project NAHC 2.0.

The NAHC strategic planning event in New Orleans on February 20-21 brought together dozens of experts from the NAHC Board, the Forum of State Associations, providers, industry support representatives, NAHC staff, and representatives of the health care industry from outside home health and hospice. Joining this group were representatives from THRUUE, consultants who help organizations transform and improve themselves. Representing the Iowa Center for Home Care at the event was ICHC Chair Joanie Steil.

The goal of all of this is to make NAHC leaner, smarter, and better for its members and the tens of millions of Americans who rely on quality health care in the home. To do that, we “will be transforming each and every part of NAHC to be modernized and to be prepared for the future,” says NAHC President Bill Dombi in this video update of the strategic planning process.
