2019 Northeast Home Health Leadership Summit

January 22-24, 2019
Boston

As the saying goes, “there’s playing … and there’s playing to win.”

The 17th Annual Northeast Home Health Leadership Summit in Boston seeks to inspire and stimulate this play‐to‐win mindset among home care leaders.

You’ll get the information and perspectives necessary to navigate the policy, reimbursement and regulatory field of home care services, especially as a new political environment in Washington, post‐election, influences this framework. The Summit will also provide you with some tactics, tools and resources.

Join your colleagues from eight northeast states for learning, networking and inspiration at the 17th Annual Northeast Home Health Leadership Summit and Play to Win.
