2023 NEHCC Call For Speakers:

Deadline to submit has been EXTENDED

Need a bit more time? Well, that’s fair

We’ve got a great pool of talks already awaiting review, but we want to have yours too! The new deadline is November 22, 2022– but this one is a hard deadline, since we’re going to need some time to read through these wonderful submissions and make those hard decisions.

What happens next?

What a great question!

After November 22, we’ll start the process of selecting talks and setting a schedule. We’ll first rank the talks using anonymized information about the submissions focusing on the content alone. That doesn’t finish the selection process, however. Choosing on content alone might leave us with three talks by the same person, or with poor representation from some aspects of our diverse community. After we’ve selected our first set of talks, we’ll do a second pass to intentionally shape a varied and representative group of speakers. The process takes time. We appreciate your patience.

Our goal is to contact every applicant during the last week of January 2023 to let you know one way or the other.

What are you waiting for?

Don’t wait until the last minute, unless that’s something that works well for you. (Fellow procrastinators of the world, unite!)

Submit Your Proposal

The Call for Speakers for the New England Home Care and Hospice Conference and Trade Show has been extended! The NEHCC committee welcomes Speaker Presentation applications from a diverse audience of home health and healthcare experts. The 2023 conference is being held from May 2-4, 2023 at the DoubleTree in Manchester, NH!

Proposals will be accepted until November 22, 2022.

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!

With a grant from the Maine Health Access Foundation and funding from the DHHS, Office of Aging and Disability Services, the Maine Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program worked with ETHOS to conduct focus groups with direct care and support professionals from across the state to learn from them about what is important to them regarding their employment. In this presentation, we will share the results of the focus groups along with recommendations for change.  Attendees will also learn about Maine’s first, Direct Care and Support Professional Advisory Council which was established to create a forum for input regarding workforce initiatives. This 17-member Council can make a difference by informing policymakers about the changes that are needed to attract and retain direct care and direct support professionals.

Conference Keynote Speakers Celebrate Strengths

New England Home Care & Hospice Conference & Trade

There isn’t one type of patient or one type of caregiver that creates the home care difference. The advantage lies in the industry’s ability to adapt quickly and effectively, to respond to changing demands while continually delivering the highest quality care. The industry’s heroic response to COVID-19 proved how valuable that adaptation is for our patients and our communities. The 12th annual New England Home Care and Hospice Conference and Trade Show at Gurney’s Resort from May 11-13 at Gurney’s Resort in Newport, RI will highlight and celebrate the strength of home care and hospice.

Keynote speakers Bill Dombi, the President of the National Association for Home Care & Hospice, and Lindsay Doak, Senior Manager of Home Health Care at Berry Dunn, will delve into the 2021 Best Practices and Future Insights Study, physician and author Lynn Hallarman, MD will speak to the importance of direct caregivers and speaker Tyler Enslin of Direct Development Training will inspire attendees with his message of resilience and thriving in times of crisis.

Data Driven Decisions

Bill Dombi
Lindsay Doak

We just experienced two of the biggest industry challenges in healthcare history – COVID-19 and a radically new payment system. Agencies who are slow to respond or lack clarity on what to do, may have their viability questioned. Learn from agencies that have tested an array of best practices in staffing, technology, clinical strategies, and operations will come ahead.

Join Bill Dombi and Lindsay to for the data you need to be among the most successful agencies.


Caregiving in the Midst of a Global Pandemic

Lynn Hallerman, MD

Lynn Hallarman’s she shares her family’s journey with cargiving during a pandemic , The Great Escape—A Physician Confronts Family Caregiving During the COVID-19 Pandemic. Join Lynn for this powerful presentation that draws on her own family’s experience, caregiver guilt, and how important it is to develop and support our most essential workforce.


The Power of Perspective

Tyler Enslin

Even in challenging times, we still possess the ability to make the best of our circumstances, develop positive habits, and manage our mindset effectively. Join Tyler to learn strategies that can help them to control stress levels, build habits that promote growth, and focus on opportunities. This highly interactive program has been specifically designed to help attendees navigate the issues caused by the COVID19 crisis.


The 12th Annual Conference will feature dozens of speakers for three days of inspiration, reinvention and networking. Topics include leadership, career advancement, financial and regulatory issues, health and wellness, small business and entrepreneurship, social media, branding and more. The nonpartisan, nonprofit conference is New England’s largest professional development event for home care, hospice and palliative care, attracting more than 300 attendees each year.

The Conference Trade Show showcases speakers and companies dedicated to patient health, and exhibits featuring products or services to improve processes and business practices at your agency.

VBP: Connecting Finance and Quality Management

May 13, 2022 @ 11:45 am 12:45 pm

The recent announcement by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to delay the national expansion of the Medicare Value Based Purchasing (VBP) model until 2023 offers home health agencies a year of “pre-implementation” preparation opportunities to align quality with finance management. This session will provide the latest information on the construct of the VBP model and implementation timelines and will provide a practical approach for incorporating the VBP performance measures into quality and financial management strategies. This session will also examine scenarios to measure the impact of specific performance improvements on resulting financial outcomes and will explore strategies for achieving optimal quality performance.
