Meet NEHCC 2018 Keynote Speaker: Laura Adams

Laura Adams
President and CEO, Rhode Island Quality Institute

If a health care provider can’t navigate the healthcare
system, who can? Laura Adams had gone through all the standard diagnostic tests before being diagnosed with breast cancer. She was dismayed at how little information was shared between the providers and how she was not included as part of her own health care team. This experience does not bode well for patients, especially those with low health literacy.

As home care and hospice professionals, we have the power to disrupt and transform the industry by focusing on patient and family engagement. Laura will share her personal story to illustrate how we must learn to use the information and data to improve the quality of the care we provide.

Laura Adams is the President and CEO of the Rhode Island Quality Institute (RIQI), a center of collaborative innovation that advances health and healthcare transformation. RIQI was named a CMS Practice Transformation Network, one of only 29 in the nation. She is the Massachusetts appointee to the Oversight Council for the MA Center for Health Information and Analysis and has served on the Rhode Island Governor’s Workgroup on Healthcare Innovation.

Registration is now open for the 2018 New England Home Care & Hospice Conference and Trade Show. The NEHCC is the region’s premier event for home care and hospice agencies. It’s hosted by the six New England state home care associations, which collectively represent nearly 400 organizations. The 2018 NEHCC will be in Cape Neddick, ME from April 25-27, 2-18.

Meet an NEHCC 2018 Keynote Speaker: Pat Gallant-Charette

Pat Gallant-Charette is a native of Maine, wife and grandmother, and  also the oldest woman ever to swim across the English Channel. Join Pat for this inspirational story about her personal journey, which reinforces her belief that we are restrained only by the limits we place on ourselves. When we recognize this, we can accomplish amazing feats.

Pat has completed five out of seven of the world’s toughest open water swims, including the North Channel between Ireland and Scotland, California’s Catalina Channel and Japan’s Tsugaru Channel. In 2016, Pat was nominated for World Open Water Swimmer Woman of the Year and for the Global Marathon Swimmers Federation Solo Swim of the Year for her record setting North Channel swim.

Meet an NEHCC 2018 Keynote Speaker: Gina Mazza

Gina Mazza, BSN, RN, CPHQ
Partner, Fazzi Associates

Having enough trained staff to provide services and administrative support is the number one strategic goal for agency directors and supervisors. Employee engagement is critically important to the every aspect of your hospice and home health agency. It is the essence of what keeps employees committed and passionate about their work. Every leader has a role to play in attaining and maintaining a high level of employee engagement.

Most experts agree that turnover typically costs about 1.5 times the annual salary of the position requiring a replacement. Mazza will discuss what this is doing to your bottom line and how the “Span of Influence,” or the number of subordinates directly reporting to a leader/manager, is affecting your agency. Gina will delve into the changing labor force and give actionable items that leaders must do now to ensure employees are engaged.

Gina Mazza is a national leader on regulatory and compliance issues. She manages one of the largest OASIS and compliance groups in the country. She has spearheaded a number of Fazzi’s national best practice initiatives and serves as the clinical expert on Fazzi’s National State of the Industry Study. Follow her at @FazziAssociates.
