COVID-19 Awareness

Click the icon above for resources intended to help NHC members and others in the patient advocacy community manage and communicate about COVID-19.

The NHC encourages patients and patient advocates to be engaged in research, policy, medical-product development, quality-of-care, and value-of-treatment initiatives. We have developed the NHC Center of Educational Excellence, an e-learning resource, to help patients and patient advocates understand complex topics related to patient centricity in health care. Here you will find our webinar series on value and payment models as well as educational curriculums on quality measures and value assessments.

The NHC requires that its member patient advocacy organizations comply with the Standards of Excellence Certification Program®. The 38 Standards cover the areas of governance, human resources, programs, fundraising, finance, accounting and reporting, and evaluation. In addition, there are 11 minimum Standards that all patient advocacy organizations must meet before they can apply for membership.
