Hospice WebEx Training on Data Submission — Taken Offline

CMS put out notification last week that the WebEx training related to the Hospice Quality Reporting Program (HQRP) was available online.  It was available for a BRIEF time on Wednesday night and Thursday; the WebEx training is temporarily unavailable due to technical issues.  Only the Technical User Guide is available on the website. The contractor is working to correct the issues and will get the training and manual back up as quickly as possible.  The HCA will keep you updated.

November is National Home Care Month – Help Us Celebrate!

Join the Home Care Alliance in celebrating National Home Care Month throughout November by visiting our new webpage www.thinkhomecare.org/homecaremonth.

On that site, the Alliance has posted materials to help home care agencies and advocates celebrate and raise awareness. There are templates for a press release, op-ed’s, and letters to the editor that can be sent to local media as well as downloadable posters that can be posted in your office and community.

Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter where the Alliance will be posting a “Home Care Fact of the Day” each day in November, along with other important news and updates. We have 142 “Likes” and are aiming to get to 150 and beyond!

HCA has plenty of educational and training events in November so please be sure to check our busy calendar of events this month.

Finally, our radio campaign in partnership with WGBH is still ongoing so stay tuned to 89.7 FM or Classical New England (99.5 FM) to hear great sponsorships from HCA members.

For more info on how to celebrate and raise awareness, or if you would like assistance with the press materials, please contact James Fuccione at the Alliance.

Website Re-Launch!

As you have likely already noticed, the www.thinkhomecare.org is undergoing a major re-design today.

The website you are now on is our dynamic newsfeed and — despite the different website address — should be considered part of www.thinkhomecare.org.  This is an official part of the Home Care Alliance of Massachusetts.

A summary of each item posted here will be automatically cross-posted at http://www.thinkhomecare.org and you may access the full article by clicking on that summary (which is likely how you got to this page).

All posts on this site will appear on our homepage in the "Alliance News Feed" section
All posts on this site will appear on our homepage in the "Alliance News Feed" section

Once you’ve read the article you clicked on, you may comment or return to www.thinkhomecare.org (a link will always be provided).  At the moment, the navigation bar up top does not work, though I will be fixing that shortly.

If you’re interested in searching through the archives kept on this website, you can use the tools that appear in the navigation bar immediately on your right.

Please feel free to email me if you have any questions.
