With top professionals in the health care and hospice fields, our Education and Quality team coordinates in-person and online programming that addresses the current issues that face home health and hospice providers.

VNAA Blueprint for Excellence

VNAA Case Study Compendiums

VNAA's Case Study Compendiums highlight the success of VNAA member agency collaborations and partnerships. The goal of these compendiums is to collect detailed information about successful programs and share this wealth of knowledge with other agencies, policymakers, and external stakeholders. It is VNAA's desire that this information demonstrate the value of nonprofit home health and hospice to others across the continuum as a proven sub-acute provider.

In-Person Meetings

VNAA hosts national and regional conferences each year, giving members the opportunity to learn from each other. During the VNAA Annual Meeting, participants hear from industry leaders and have the opportunity to present or attend workshops and poster sessions about issues specific to nonprofit home health and hospice providers.

Each September, the Public Policy Leadership Conference convenes home health and hospice leaders in Washington, D.C., to educate lawmakers about nonprofit home health and hospice delivery systems and about the vulnerable patients they serve. VNAA secures high caliber industry speakers who provide insight and expertise on the regulatory and legislative affairs that affect VNAA members.

The VNAA hosts several Regional Meetings throughout the year to educate, advance and convene members in smaller work groups outside of the national conferences.

Committees and Interest Groups

VNAA offers a variety of topic-specific committees, interest groups and task forces that encourage members to share best practices and learn from each other.
