Program Overview

Don’t miss NHF’s lunch symposium, where we’ll discuss how the Comprehensive Care Sustainability Collaborative (CCSC) provides a unique forum for HTC clinicians and allied health care professionals to collaborate with payers to facilitate the sustainability of the HTC comprehensive care model. The aim of CCSC is to provide payers, purchasers, and other key health care decision makers with knowledge and skills crucial for managing the costs associated with hemophilia and to recognize the value of HTC services. Learn about how you can prepare your HTC to thrive in the ever-changing health care landscape.
