Meet NEHCC 2018 Keynote Speaker: Melanie Stover

Hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, and other care providers are looking for help to aid patients in managing
the disease process at home. If you aren’t there to tell them what you can do for them, no one will. Building a customer base starts with defining your brand and communicating your message. Learn how to get a seat at the table, how to present your data, and how to establish your agency as the provider of choice.

Stover has led numerous workshops and field training programs for clients, focusing on training clinicians to be better salespeople and training professional salespeople to produce more in less time through account management, successful selling skills, personal branding, time management, and improved customer service.

Meet NEHCC 2018 Keynote Speaker: Laura Adams

Laura Adams
President and CEO, Rhode Island Quality Institute

If a health care provider can’t navigate the healthcare
system, who can? Laura Adams had gone through all the standard diagnostic tests before being diagnosed with breast cancer. She was dismayed at how little information was shared between the providers and how she was not included as part of her own health care team. This experience does not bode well for patients, especially those with low health literacy.

As home care and hospice professionals, we have the power to disrupt and transform the industry by focusing on patient and family engagement. Laura will share her personal story to illustrate how we must learn to use the information and data to improve the quality of the care we provide.

Laura Adams is the President and CEO of the Rhode Island Quality Institute (RIQI), a center of collaborative innovation that advances health and healthcare transformation. RIQI was named a CMS Practice Transformation Network, one of only 29 in the nation. She is the Massachusetts appointee to the Oversight Council for the MA Center for Health Information and Analysis and has served on the Rhode Island Governor’s Workgroup on Healthcare Innovation.

New England Home Care Conference Has a New Name

The 2015 six-state home care conference and trade show has changed its name to the New England Home Care & Hospice Conference and Trade Show.

“All of the past few conferences had workshops on hospice clinical and financial issues,” said Patricia Kelleher of the Home Care Alliance of Massachusetts, “so it made sense to showcase this in the title.”

Many of the state association partners — Vermont Association for Home Care & Hospice, Connecticut Association for Health Care at Home, Rhode Island Partnership for Home Care & Hospice and the Maine Alliance for Home Care & Hospice — have represented  hospice issues locally and on the federal level for years.

“We hope to have a keynote speaker that will address this important sector of our industry” said Deborah Hoyt of the Connecticut association.

Additionally, the Exhibit Hall will feature hospice products and services hospice.
