Exciting Changes Are Coming for the AAHCM Member Forum

As a home care medicine professional, it’s important to have a quick and easy way to connect with others in the field—whether to ask questions, pose ideas, or share resources. The American Academy of Home Care Medicine recognizes this need and is ever striving to provide tools and support to our members to make such communication and collaboration possible.

To provide members with a better community experience, AAHCM has identified a need for improvements to the Member Forum. By updating our forum technology, we’ll be able to make the following improvements:

  • Eliminating the need to log in to the website and forum separately. In the future, one login will provide you access to both areas.
  • Verification of users so that only AAHCM members can partake in the forum and so that you can rest assured that your discussions aren’t available to the public.
  • A new look and feel to match the new AAHCM website design and to better reflect who we are as a community.
  • Feature areas to help you quickly view Academy announcements and events.

This new online collaborative tool, designed exclusively for AAHCM members, will still provide the benefits of the current forum by offering you the ability to:

  • participate in digital friendly discussion forums
  • connect with other AAHCM members, asking questions or sharing ideas
  • allow you to share large files without cluttering your inbox.

Working Out the Bugs

To make sure the new forum works correctly and meets the needs of our members, AAHCM will be conducting user testing on the new platform during the months of April and May. A sampling of the membership will be asked to participate on the new forum and to provide feedback. We want to make sure that you get the most of this member benefit and that we’re proving you a community that meets your needs.

When testing and changes are complete, we’ll provide all members with more information on how to use the community, any new features, and dates for last days to access the current forum platform.

To access the current AAHCM forum, please visit aahcmforum.org.

If you are a beta tester, you can enter the new forum at memberforum.aahcm.org.
