The Member Resources section of the National Health Council website provides NHC member organizations with access to information, best practices, model policies, events, publications, and other resources to enhance the operation of their organization and better achieve the NHC mission and goals.
Standards of Excellence®
The National Health Council (NHC) has adopted a set of good operating practices to ensure that its patient advocacy group members (also known as voluntary health agencies) maintain the highest standards of organizational effectiveness and public stewardship.
Patient advocacy organizations need your support to advance the development of new treatments and cures and to improve access to appropriate health care for people with chronic conditions. To ensure your donation goes to a well-run, mission-focused organization, the NHC has created a list of the nation's leading national patient advocacy organizations.
NHC Annual Health Leadership Conference
Each year, the National Health Council hosts a Health Leadership Conference for key stakeholders in the health community to informally meet, share information about emerging issues in health care and nonprofit organization management, and to learn from nationally recognized experts and each other.
The National Health Council produces an array of publications for the public, such as Council Currents, the Management Compensation Report, and Health Groups in Washington. The NHC also produces the VHA Revenue Survey, which is available for members only.
Affinity Groups bring together staff from NHC members who share similar responsibilities within their organizations. They gather to discuss issues common to their area of work and offer advice to NHC staff.
