HCCI is part of a coalition of key partners working together so that medically-complex patients have access to evidence-based, high-value, home-based primary care, are treated with respect and dignity, and have their goals and preferences honored.
American Academy of Home Care Medicine (AAHCM)
AAHCM delivers on the promise of interdisciplinary, high-value health care in the home for all people in need by promoting the art, science, and practice of home care medicine. It is the professional association that represents physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, social workers, and others working in the field of home care medicine.
The National Home-Based Primary Care and Palliative Consortium
The mission of The National Home-Based Primary Care and Palliative Care Network is to advance the field of home-based medical care through a coordinated program of quality improvement and applied research.
The Network’s vision is that homebound persons receive high-quality evidence-based medical care in their homes. We aim to improve medical practice in the home and expand the evidence base for home-based medical care by fostering communities of best practice engaging in quality improvement, and conducting applied research.
Respecting Choices® (RC) is an internationally recognized, evidence-based system for person-centered decision making that transforms the healthcare culture by honoring an individual’s goals and values.
RC’s goal is to design a system of person-centered care that is guided by the best scientific evidence and is aligned with an individual’s goals and values.
This system requires a shared decision-making process that involves respectful interaction among providers, individuals, and families, and keeps the focus of planning on what matters most to each and every person for any healthcare decision. Through a systematic approach in designing and implementing ACP processes, the goal of honoring an individual’s healthcare decisions can be achieved.
