A Health Care Advocate for Every Patient™
The National Association of Healthcare Advocacy is dedicated to improving patient outcomes through the promotion of the profession of health care advocacy through empowerment, education and collaboration.
NAHAC developed the first Code of Ethics and Best Practices for the profession of Health Care Advocacy in 2011. In 2022, a Revised Code of Ethics for Patient and Health Care Advocates was written in conjunction with the Patient Advocates Certification Board and HealthAdvocateX. NAHAC members must commit to following this Code of Ethics protecting the interests of patients and their families.
NAHAC’s continuing education programs for professional patient and health care advocates support advocates’ understanding of the dynamics in the ever-changing healthcare environment and also helps advocates develop and maintain health care advocacy practices.
NAHAC works in collaboration with fellow advocacy organizations to promote the profession of patient and health care advocacy and serves as THE professional organization for independent patient and health care advocates.
