AAHomecare Strategic Priorities Survey Now Open

The American Association for Homecare (AAHomecare) has opened a strategic priorities survey to “all areas of the home medical equipment sector.”

According to a May 1 news announcement, the organization said the survey “is designed to capture perspectives from HME suppliers, manufacturers, distributors, service providers to the HME industry, and HME association executives.”

The survey is open to participants through Fri., May 12.

Information gathered by the survey “will help guide a comprehensive strategic planning process that began in earnest this March,” the news announcement added. “The process will set industry and Association priorities for the next two to three years.”

AAHomecare President/CEO Tom Ryan said as the survey opened, “We want input from all segments of the HME community, both AAHomecare members and non-members to help inform our planning process. This is your chance to make sure your company’s needs, and those of your patients or customers, are considered in that effort.”

Josh Marx, Chairman of AAHomecare’s Strategic Planning Committee and the CEO of Medical Service Company, said in the announcement, “Just as our healthcare system is changing, AAHomecare must evolve to support its wide range of stakeholders. I’m excited for the work the committee is focusing on, culminating with our in-person session in July.

“The association is ensuring it is positioned to create value for all types of HME providers today, tomorrow, and into the future. Through it all, we will remain committed to our core purpose to advance and advocate for the value of quality healthcare services at home.”

AAHomecare said the survey is brief and “completely anonymous,” asking only demographic information, including the type of company and products lines served. “Individual company responses will be confidential, and data will only be shared in aggregate,” the announcement said.

The organization is seeking “to capture input from one experienced leader per company” to limit the instances of multiple responses coming from a single organization.
