AAHCM Supporters

AAHCM partners with allied organizations in a variety of ways to deliver on the promise of interdisciplinary, high-value health care in the home for all people in need by promoting the art, science, and practice of home care medicine.

We appreciate the support of the organizations below as we work together to improve the care and outcomes of patients in home-based primary care settings.

 

Home Centered Care Institute

Home Centered Care Institute (HCCI) is a leader in advancing home-based primary care in communities across the United States.

In April, 2017, the American Academy of Home Care Medicine was awarded a $250,000 grant from The Home Centered Care Institute, “The Tipping Point: Resources to Advance Home-Based Medical Care.” The resources provided by this remarkable grant to the Academy will support advocacy in two major areas: 1) Expansion of the Independence at Home (IAH) demonstration model to a nationwide program, and 2) Development of national value-based payment models for home-based medical care (HBMC). 

This exciting collaboration uniquely draws upon HCCI and AAHCM’s strengths to make HBMC the national standard of care for medically complex patients.  The generosity and vision of the Home Centered Care Institute, exemplified by these essential resources to support policy change, will allow us to achieve the critical changes needed to make HBMC providers financially sustainable at a national level.

 

 

The John A. Hartford Foundation

The John A. Hartford Foundation has awarded the Academy a grant of $150,000 in support of the project, “Building Awareness and Engaging Payers to Bring Home-Based Primary Care into the Mainstream.”

 

The grant supports collaborative projects whose goal is to help move the field of home-based medicine into the mainstream of U. S. health service delivery, and to improve the care and outcomes for vulnerable older adults. AAHCM deeply appreciates this opportunity.

 


AAHCM Industry Relations Council

The AAHCM Industry Relations Council serves as an adjunct group made up of key industry supporters in home-based primary care who share a common goal of advancing the care of patients in that setting. IRC members provide resources, both financial and educational, to help the Academy meet its mission. Please visit the Industry Relations Council web page for more information.
