Outcome Resources considered it an honor to recently sponsor the 2013 Hospice Action Network Advocacy Intensive in Washington, D.C. Together with over 200 hospice professionals we had the opportunity to share positive, caring and supportive stories with nearly all of the nation’s Senators and State Representatives. In addition, this year, ten advocates whose hospice programs would otherwise be unable to afford it were able to attend the Hospice Action Network’s Advocacy Intensive thanks to Outcome Resources scholarships.
The support of our elected officials is crucial to protect and preserve the hospice Medicare Benefit and to support legislation that positively affects those patients and families facing end of life. We are grateful to the Hospice Action Network for providing all of us involved in hospice the forum and opportunity to speak with a unified message in support of our daily efforts. During the meetings on the Hill with Representatives, Senators, and Legislative Assistants, advocates focused on requesting support with the following issues and legislation:
To learn more about these issues or how you can help, please visit Hospice Action Network. Outcome Resources has been involved as hospice advocates for many years and will continue to support these efforts at every opportunity. We are honored to have Angie Truesdale, Vice President, Public Policy, and Tony Kudner, Manager, Grassroots Advocacy, presenting a session at the Outcome Resources Pathways to Success Conference by the Bay this November. To learn more about the Conference, visit the Conference Website or Download the Information Sheet.

Next week the Outcome Resources team will participate for the third year in Capitol Hill Day in Washington DC along with hundreds of hospice advocates from around the nation. We will also be meeting hospice partners and friends at the NHPCO Management & Leadership Conference. Stop by to meet us at Booth #203 in the Exhibit Hall. We hope to see you there!
A special thank you is due to NHPCO and the Hospice Action Network for their tireless and ongoing efforts at lobbying on behalf of hospice year round, and all the hard work that goes into making Capitol Hill Day a success. The Hospice Action Network is also continuing to amplify efforts with Virtual Hill Day. Find out more at http://www.facebook.com/hospiceactionnetwork.
As we move forward in these times, cost management must be a concern for all hospice programs as we face the possibility of further cuts. Outcome Resources is dedicated exclusively to hospices, and helping hospices succeed by decreasing costs while increasing the quality of patient care is our mission.
