AAHomecare to Launch Industry-Wide Strategic Priorities Survey on May 1


AAHomecare is seeking input from the full spectrum of home medical equipment (HME) stakeholders to help us set strategic priorities that reflect the needs of our industry and better equip the Association to achieve them.

Data from the survey will help guide a comprehensive strategic planning process that began in earnest this March and will include an in-person session for the full AAHomecare Board in July. The process is focused on setting industry and Association priorities for the next two to three years.

“Reimbursement models, payer mixes, patient preferences, healthcare technology, and government policies affecting HME are going to continue to evolve -- and we need to ensure we’re able to influence these new developments where we can,” said Tom Ryan, AAHomecare president & CEO. “If we’re not thinking ahead, we’ll be falling behind the pace of change.”

“First-hand insights from all segments of the HME community will help us set a strategic direction for our industry and how we allocate resources to win on our most important priorities and provide high value to Association members,” Ryan added. “This is your chance to make sure your company’s needs, and those of your patients or customers, are considered in that effort.”

Coming soon: AAHomecare will release the brief survey on May 1. All segments of the HME community -- including companies that are not currently AAHomecare members -- are encouraged to participate. The survey is anonymous, but we will be asking that you make an effort to only submit one response per company. The survey will close on May 12.

*** OAMES will share the survey as soon as it becomes available and encourages broad participation.
