What is the IRC?

The IRC serves as an adjunct group made up of key industry supporters that provide goods and services in the Home Care setting and who share a common goal of advancing the care of patients in that setting. IRC members provide resources, both financial and educational, to help the Academy meet their mission.

Goals for AAHCM’s IRC

The AAHCM IRC provides a platform for year-round engagement between AAHCM leadership and members and the vendors that provide products and services used in the field of home care medicine.

This program allows AAHCM to build positive relationships with industry leaders in the field of home care medicine, helps to create a forum to exchange ideas and insights that could enhance patient care, and can provide resources to further programs that benefit homecare physicians, NPs, PAs, and their patients.
