NPHI Welcomes New Members and Provides an Orientation Session for All Members

Today, the National Partnership for Healthcare and Hospice Innovation (NPHI) was grateful to hear from Beth Kurta, Senior Director of Member Engagement, Sarah Sharp, Member Communications & Vendor Relations Manager, and Stephanie Rogers, Administrative Services Manager to discuss resources and services NPHI offers to all members. NPHI membership also heard from Patrick Miller, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of NorthStar Care Community, on their partnership with NPHI. Notably, Mr. Miller spoke to the importance of NPHI’s toll-free hotline that connects each caller to a not-for-profit provider.

This Member Engagement call presented an overview on NPHI and the initiatives the collaborative is working on. NPHI staff provided the membership with details on the NPHI Member Portal, the NPHI public website, the Forums, Workgroups, and User Groups offered for members as well as information on the Preferred Vendor Program, Group Purchasing Opportunities, Social Media, and NPHI’s Annual Summit. The conversation served as a time to refresh members on the many resources NPHI offers as well as was a time for members to connect with one another.

“I’m thrilled to engage with the membership on our shared mission of community-integrated care,” said Beth Kurta, Senior Director of Member Engagement. “Regardless of size, location, rural or urban status, at the end of the day, our mission is the same – to provide great care as not-for-profit organizations.”

The conversation, entitled “NPHI In-Service/Tutorial/Orientation Session,” was part of a biweekly series of NPHI-hosted discussions to address today’s pressing hospice topics through engagement with health policy experts, thought leaders, and other industry innovators. The discussion was meant to present and educate NPHI’s membership on new initiatives the team is working on and to offer an update on the Forums and Workgroups including PACE Programs, Pediatrics Services, and Regulatory and Compliance User Groups, among others.
