We joined other leaders, educators and vendors in the CTE space to collaborate and learn through professional development. I was pleasantly surprised by the number of speakers willing to share their success stories and best practices, and left feeling optimistic about where CTE is headed.

Why I left the 2019 PCMH Congress refreshed about patient-centered care


 

A few short weeks ago I was able to attend the 2019 Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Congress in Boston, MA as a representative of NHA. High-quality credentialing solutions and our expertise in allied health is something that I’m very proud of as a director of educational and employer partnerships. However, we want organizations to see us as something more than that. We are at the forefront of helping to reshape healthcare through developing, advancing and advocating for the frontline healthcare worker, with the goal of improving patient care.
