For six years now, Cypress HomeCare Solutions’ Managing Partner Bob Roth was invited to participate and represent the home care trade at the National Association for Home Care and Hospice (NAHC) Strategic Planning Congress this week in Washington, D.C. One hundred and twenty successful home health, home care and hospice leaders from around the country joined together to discuss the future of health care for our nation and their role as influencers in the move to a more home-centered care model.
In establishing the 2013 Strategic Action Plan, which will outline the standards and guidelines for NAHC members to follow, Bob and the other invitees were asked to consider the following question: What is the current status of home health, home care and hospice, and where are these industries going in the future? With health care at the forefront in our nation, it is becoming increasingly important to understand all the possible solutions and services that will help individuals and our country as a whole as our older population continues to grow.
As part of developing this year’s plan and in looking at the long-range challenges our country will be facing, participants were honored to have this year’s strategic planning session facilitated by Dr. Lance Secretan, leadership coach, consultant and world-renowned speaker. During his presentation, Dr. Secretan encouraged invitees to develop their own dream statement for the future of our industry. Along with other attendees, Bob participated in creating this joint dream statement: A world in which all can enjoy home as the center of care. With effective leadership, inspiration and perseverance, we can make this dream a reality.
It is a great honor and privilege for Cypress to be represented in this prestigious group of leaders, and we are looking forward to implementing the new strategic direction and contributing to the growth of home care, which is not only the most economical solution for our great nation but also the place where most people want to be. We are proud of Bob and his accomplishments in our trade, and we anticipate a successful and innovative future for our industry.
