Serving the home health, home care and hospice industry since 1999.

ElevatingHome and its associated organizations, The Visiting Nurse Associations of America and the Alliance for Home Health Quality and Innovation, have arranged a substantial discount for their members for a series of courses from Fazzi Associates. The Certified Home Health Case Management (CHHCM) and Certified Hospice Case Management (CHCM) online preparation courses, which includes a certification exam package, start on September 17.

The program is accredited by the International Association of Continuing Education and Training (IACET) – the premier standards-setting body for continued education and professional training. Accreditation means that this program has been thoroughly assessed by a third party and meets the ANSI/IACET Standard for Continuing Education and Training. Members may purchase the program for $325.
