Description:

The Arizona Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (AHPCO) is the nonprofit membership organization representing hospice and palliative care programs and professionals in Arizona. The organization is committed to advancing quality end-of-life care and serving as a voice and resource for its members and the communities they serve. Considered to be the model for quality, compassionate care at the end of life, hospice care involves a team-oriented approach of expert medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support expressly tailored to the patient's wishes. Emotional and spiritual support also is extended to the family and loved ones. Generally, this care is provided in the patient's home or in a home-like setting operated by a hospice program. Medicare, private health insurance, and Medicaid in most states cover hospice care for patients who meet certain criteria. Founded as the Arizona Hospice Organization, we added "palliative care" to our name to reflect the range of care and services our members provide - as hospice care and palliative care share the same core values and philosophies. On 17 March 2000, Board members for the Arizona Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (AHPCO) began a process toward a new three-year strategic plan. After taking stock, members agreed to contribute a significant amount of their time in the continuing strategic planning process. They also agreed to commission an ad-hoc Strategic Plan Evaluation Committee to be comprised of the Board's Executive Committee and its Executive Director 1) to monitor and evaluate the Strategic Plan and 2) to recommend modifications to the full Board throughout the Plan's three-year implementation. Our Strategic Plan identifies critical areas where work is especially needed and it develops five guiding values to help focus our efforts on accomplishing our goals. Our plan: reflects our Organization five guiding values and integrates them with our mission and programs; will help us direct our resources and strengthen coordination within our Organization and across member provider agencies; will also eliminate duplication of programs and services and use technology to perform our work more efficiently and accurately; and will help us communicate more effectively with those we serve and our partners in the hospice and palliative care communities. This plan is not static - it will change in response to feedback from stakeholders and customers, assessment of our performance, emerging state needs, and new state and federal legislation.
