Expert Advice from the Center for Health Care Law

With an uncommon ability to marshall resources and forge coalitions, NAHC approaches legislative advocacy with a broad perspective. The association is guided by President Val J. Halamandaris, with over 35 years experience on Capitol Hill.
Research to Operate More Efficiently
In today’s cost-conscious environment, there is no more important element than data in keeping one’s agency ahead of the pack. NAHC’s dedicated team of researchers is constantly benchmarking the field to better track the latest trends and developments affecting home care and hospice. NAHC members are able to tap into this vital information at their convenience, giving them a competitive advantage over nonmembers.
The Latest Information and In-depth Analysis
One thing NAHC does, and does it fast, is getting members the latest, most accurate news as soon as it happens-sometimes before the information is public. NAHC staff is involved in shaping policy with government agencies overseeing home care and hospice, gathering news and background information on everything that affects you. NAHC keeps its members ahead of the curve on all issues through several sources:
NAHC Report, a daily e-newsletter, offers the latest information on legislation, regulations, litigation, and general news affecting home care and hospice. NAHC members receive a electronic version sent to them in their e-mail, with access to the full text of each article on NAHC’s web site.
CARING magazine, NAHC’s award-winning monthly, presents in-depth reviews of the latest home care and hospice trends, technology, and issues.
NAHC’s Member Network ListServ (Provider Members Only), an online forum for providers monitored by NAHC’s experts, gives you instant access to colleagues from across the country. Giving NAHC members a quick and easy method to communicate with each other, just ask a question and receive advice from others in the field.
Discounts on all NAHC Meetings and Conferences
One of the best opportunities for professional and personal development is at NAHC’s conferences and meetings. Each event is planned with you in mind, examining issues, trends, and recent developments affecting you. With most events offering continuing education for nurses and accountants, NAHC’s meetings and conferences provide for an uplifting gathering for caring professionals from around the country. NAHC members will receive discounts on all these meetings, including:
