ASHE Advocacy professionals routinely monitor the many codes and standards that regulate health care facilities to address conflicts where they may occur and provide a strong clear voice when advocating for rules that assure efficient operation of health care facilities. We rely on ASHE to represent us with the regulatory and legislative bodies that set the rules. They depend on HESNI and members of other affiliate chapters to get involved in the process. HESNI participates in ASHE’s Advocacy Highway by helping direct and maintain the flow of useful information and feedback from the field back to ASHE. Find out how you can be involved as an Advocacy Liaison.
