The Call for Speakers for the New England Home Care and Hospice Conference and Trade Show is now open. The NEHCC committee welcomes Speaker Presentation applications from a diverse audience of home health and healthcare experts. The 2022 conference is being held from May 11-13 at Gurney’s Newport Resort in Newport, RI!
Proposals will be accepted until NOVEMBER 14, 2021.
Who can submit? Anyone and everyone is welcome to submit a speaking proposal! We love to hear from staff at agencies, consultants, and vendors alike.
The goal of the conference is to provide best practices, proven strategies and case studies for successfully and efficiently operating – and growing – a home health & hospice agency amidst stifling regulatory requirements, staffing shortages, annual payment cuts AND a global pandemic.
We’re seeking professionals and thought leaders with direct experience and proven track records who can discuss in detail their successes and lessons learned.
If chosen as a speaker, you’ll receive:
Professional recognition as a speaker – in our brochure and in conference materials
Complimentary admission to all sessions and networking events
Use this link to submit your proposal by November 14, 2021.
Presentation subjects can include but are not limited to:
Understanding the CMS Value Based Purchasing Model
Survey prep strategies to avoid deficiencies related to new CoPs
Lessons learned from your Emergency Preparedness for COVID-19
Best practices for achieving a 5-star rating
Sales and marketing best practices to grow a home health & hospice agency
How to diversify payer sources
Cost containment and staffing strategies
Ways to recruit and retain staff
Condition of Participation Compliance
Lessons learned in CMS probe-and-educate and pre-claim reviews
Home health’s place/role in the continuum of care
Business growth achieved by new technology adoption
Quality Reporting Program
Presentations should provide concrete solutions that attendees can adapt for use at their companies, as well as quantitative proof of how the solutions worked. When choosing speakers, we will consider the following criteria:
Specificity: No vague, sanitized presentations, please. Our attendees demand objectivity (both successes and setbacks addressed), facts, numbers, dollars saved/earned, mistakes made or avoided and lessons learned.
Originality: We’re looking for fresh yet functional solutions to home health & hospice challenges, revealing real-world agency experiences.
Practicality: We want sessions that speak to the immediate concerns of agency senior leadership, clinicians, therapists, direct care staff and more. You should offer usable strategies that attendees can take home and implement.
Slides, overheads and handouts: We’ll give special attention to presentations supplemented by informative audio/visuals and information-packed handouts that attendees can take home with them.
*Note: Vendors that submit proposals in conjunction with Home Health Agencies tend to be valued more than those who do not.
In 2010, the home care associations of New England decided that they could deliver greater value to their members by combining their separate annual conferences into a single regional meeting. After the success of that first meeting – which brought together more than 400 home care leaders from more than 120 agencies – they decided to continue the collaboration.
In 2022, the conference is heading to Newport Rhode Island.
The New England Home Care & Hospice Conference really found its footing as a virtual event this year. Participants, educators and vendors all commented on the smooth transition to the virtual format. Overall we agree, in person is still better.
While we all prefer in-person events, online education is not going away any time soon. Why not roll with it? Starting this August, the associations of the six New England States will expand offerings to include a few webinars and in-person trainings year round. These offerings are targeted specifically for our industry and region.
Look for upcoming topics like Medicare policy, PDGM, OASIS, staffing recruitment tools, as well as cost-saving ideas, and certification options for PT, hospice, COS and more!
We have partnered with SimiTree for our first three webinar offerings. SimiTree is the newly formed entity from the Simione and BlackTree merger. These leaders in Healthcare consulting are raising the bar for the post-acute setting.
Have immediate access to all of the session recordings through the conference platform through June 30, 2021 (regardless of when you purchase them). Individual sessions recordings unavailable. Link to our registration page for more information.

Diversity measures our ability to share differences, build relationships, and be creative thinkers. Inclusion measures our ability to embrace these differences through participation. Implicit bias limits our ability to be successful in diversity and inclusion efforts without even knowing it.
Join Anita Foster for this captivating look at the dynamics of diversity and inclusion and discover our ability to see the blind spots of implicit bias. Foster will examine how training and mentorship can expedite professional development, engage diverse ideas, and leads to improved customer experiences, faster innovation, and greater staff retention rates.
