Health care took center stage in Washington, DC over the past few days as the National Association of Home Care and Hospice held its annual March on Washington while the Supreme Court held historic hearings on the Affordable Care Act. Sansio executives joined industry leaders from every state to help share how homecare can play a central role in a more effective health care delivery model.
Several senators delivered passionate statements to NAHC attendees in the Russell Senate Office Building’s historic Caucus Room pledging their support of the expansion of home care to help answer some of the nation’s greatest challenges. Appearances were made by Senators Cardin (MD), Carper (DE), Collins (ME), Klobuchar (MN), and Whitehouse (RI).

The advocacy team shared how home care can be the answer to some of the nation’s greatest challenges, citing how home care makes good economic sense and provides great moral value. The Minnesota delegation was able to provide information to all seven of Minnesota’s congressional House Representatives and both Senators.
The NAHC March on Washington also featured several educational sessions and an exhibition of products and services available to help homecare agencies more effectively manage their businesses. Sansio exhibited its HomeSolutions.NET SaaS solution at the conference, providing attendees with a first look at its new Mobile point-of-care version which runs on a wide variety of browser-capable devices including iPads and tablets.
