 2016 Conference Art

  Only organizations, whose staffs learn to soar on the winds of change and use the power of change to fuel their progress, will be successful in their endeavors. In Home Healthcare Service providers have had to be resilient and creative in harnessing the power of the change around them.  Change has been constant in care delivery. From reimbursement strategy to changing regulations; from competition to first time partnerships the change is constant and demanding. All the changes seem to come with the underpinning of a technology landscape whose innovations we hope will make us more efficient and profitable! This year’s conference will include tracks for administration/leadership and clinical practice.
