AHHC of NC Launches New Website

May 31, 2017 | AHHC of NC is proud to announce the launch of its new website, domain, and logo - ahhcnc.org. The update is long-awaited, and the Association is excited to use the new site as a tool to help even more hospice, home care & home health providers, healthcare providers, patients and their families, and the community. "We are very proud of our new website and excited to be able to present it in our 45th year of operation,” says Tim Rogers, President and CEO of AHHC. “We are even more excited for our members to browse its content, their member portal, and our robust educational offerings, advocacy alerts, and products/services. To keep costs as low as possible, I want to thank AHHC staff, and specifically Courtney Hodges, AHHC's Senior Director of Marketing & Communications for leading this initiative in-house.”

The Association has revamped its logo, which can be seen on the site. “We wanted to keep the heart and house logo because it is so memorable and it really speaks to AHHC’s love for and protection of healthcare at home,” says Courtney Hodges. “So we went with a modern, fresh interpretation of the original logo.”

AHHC’s domain has changed from homeandhospicecare.org to ahhcnc.org in an effort to be more representative of the Association and more definitive and concise for members, stakeholders and the community.

The new website features responsive design, a member portal, resources for providers and the community (including AHHC’s coveted member directory used by hundreds of referral sources each year), AHHC publications, news, live and on-demand education, advocacy information and government affairs updates, membership information and AHHC’s Career Center which supports healthcare at home as the employer of choice.

AHHC was established in 1972 by a group of county home health agencies and has grown into an all-encompassing, non-profit organization that represents over 800 home care, home health, hospice & palliative care provider agencies and affiliate members who serve the healthcare at home community. The Association’s model mirrors the environment of healthcare today: inclusive, cooperative, collaborative, and forward-thinking.

AHHC is proud to provide Resources, Education, Advocacy and Leadership to its members, as it has for 45 years.

Raleigh, NC – May 30, 2017 - Transitions LifeCare has received a $125,000 grant from The Duke Endowment to establish a pediatric telehealth program. The Duke Endowment grant will be used to implement pediatric telehealth services for Transitions Kids, a home-based hospice and palliative care program of Transitions LifeCare that supports the unique needs of children birth through age 18 who have a life-limiting illness. Through telehealth, Transitions Kids staff will be able to provide “face-to-face” triage of after-hours needs, conduct family meetings that include providers from collaborating organizations or hospitals, and more quickly respond to the needs of children who live a great distance from the Transitions LifeCare campus.
