    Bridging Acute and Post-Acute Healthcare Professionals

Mission Statement:

The purpose of the National Post-Acute Care Continuum is to educate and share best practices in post-acute care and care transitions that are aligned with the mandates of health care reform through national summits and local events.

The vision of the National Post-Acute Care Continuum is to lead the transformation of post-acute healthcare through education, best practice innovation and change.

A fast-changing post-acute landscape offers opportunities to shift the paradigm. In the wake of  health care reform, forward-thinking organizations and practitioners are learning to embrace change, ask better questions, and explore new possibilities; in short, to implement the survival skills of industry leaders. The demand for more and better quality care at lower cost demands new thinking, and NPACC is committed to building a network of like-minded people and organizations whose pursuit of best practices is practical: informed by genuine needs, driven by shared interests, and committed to helping others collaborate toward best practices in a changing healthcare landscape.

NPACC was established to support meaningful connections and learning across the community of acute- and post-acute care providers working to make a measurably positive impact. We are committed to amplifying the vision of professionals and organizations working together to improve practices in person-centered care, and to sharing knowledge and resources via local and national furthering educational/learning opportunities that further this purpose.
