Home Healthcare, Hospice, and Information Technology 2019 (H3IT 2019) is an annual international conference for all stakeholders interested in innovative approaches to home healthcare, hospice, and information technology. Building upon the success of the first five years, the conference provides an authoritative forum where evidence-based findings, information, and tools are communicated to achieve better health outcomes, quality of care, utilization of and access to care, and reduced care costs in home and hospice care settings. H3IT’s interdisciplinary and applied elements make the conference highly relevant to the patients, providers, payers, vendors, and governments.

In 2019, H3IT will feature three expert keynote speakers who will talk about care coordination and information needs, quality improvement, and importance of partnership between industry and academia. In addition, cutting-edge research findings will be presented in important H3IT areas such as natural language processing for diagnosis purposes, problems with the patient problem lists, effective management of medication lists, predictive modeling for identification of probable dementia, assessment of strength-based whole-person health via apps, integrating technology for improving productivity and reducing turnover in home health agencies, supporting caregivers via technology adoption, and development of usable applications for quality improvement in home health agencies. During the conference, these research findings will be interpreted and discussed by both industry experts and researchers.

NAHC Grassroots Advocacy Boot Camp

 Sunday, October 13, 10:00am-12:00pm

Health care in the home is popular and affordable, and demand for it is growing every year. We have a great story to tell the public and elected officials, so we need a strong grassroots campaign to make sure people hear that story. Successful grassroots advocacy campaigns require a group of knowledgeable and committed activists who can communicate effectively with public officials, the media, and the general public.

The Grassroots Advocacy Boot Camp is a two hour, intensive and immersive education session which will provide attendees with the knowledge and skills necessary to be well-informed, effective, and empowered advocates within their communities and organizations.

  • Learn what grassroots advocacy is and your role and responsibly as an advocate
  • Familiarize yourself with the legislative process and the most important points of influence along the journey
  • Gain insight into the most effective methods for building an effective relationship with your elected officials
  • Become familiar with the key issues impacting the home health care and hospice communities
  • Participate in an active campaign

Ensuring every American has access to quality care in the home is of paramount importance and will require the voices, hearts, and minds of millions of people working in unison. Join us at the inaugural Grassroots Advocacy Boot Camp and become part of the solution!
