What is HCTAC?

The Home Care Technology Advisory Council (HCTAC) was established by the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) to amplify the voice of the home care technology industry in federal policy decisions and to support initiatives that encourage the use of a wide variety of e-enabled technologies centered on improving person-centric longitudinal care delivery models, measurable clinical outcomes, and promoting self-care management among patients.

 These technology solutions include:

  • EMRs and EHRs
  • Personal health records (PHRs)
  • Remote health monitoring
  • Mobile health applications
  • Telehealth and telemedicine
  • Aging-in-place technologies
  • Point of care solutions
  • Health information exchanges (HIEs) Data capture and management tools
  • Practice management/backend solutions
  • Fully integrated suite of health IT devices and software that support interoperability and interconnectivity with other providers within the US healthcare system

Whether we are developing useful standards to enhance the functionality of health information technologies being used in non-traditional care settings or urging Congress to recognize and support the importance of providing home health, hospice, and home care providers with affordable, practical, and untethered technologies that supplement chronic and terminal disease management and care coordination for our most vulnerable citizens, the Home Care Technology Advisory Council (HCTAC) leads the advancement of technology to the transition towards collaborative, empowered care in the home.
