The American Academy of Home Care Physicians is now the American Academy of Home Care Medicine.
We've changed our name to signal and welcome the growth in the kinds of clinicians, administrators and others who are interested in our field. But our mission is the same: to foster the art and science of medicine in the home. The new name underscores our members' continuing commitment to caring for the sickest, frailest seniors, and to work toward that day when all in need of medical care in the home will have it available.
This is an exciting time for us and our members as we lean forward into new care and payment models, find ways to scale programs, and work to foster public policies that support medical care in the home.
