Advocating for the medically fragile community is a key value at Angels of Care. We strive not only to provide exceptional home health services to our pediatric patients, but to also fight for the rights of this amazing community. Kristen Robison, RN, is the VP of Governmental Affairs at Angels of Care Pediatric Home Health. For more than a decade, she has been involved with the Texas Association for Home Care & Hospice (TAHCH), an organization which advocates for ethical practices, quality, and economic viability of licensed providers in Texas. Based out of Austin, TX, TAHCH is a statewide association that represents over 1200 home health and hospice agencies. Kristen has served in many different tiers of this association and has recently received a new title.
Since becoming involved in TAHCH, Kristen has advocated for home health agencies in multiple settings at both state and federal levels. Her roles have included Chair of the Pediatric Committee, a member of the TAHCH Board of Directors in the Pediatric Auspice, and, as of this August, she is now the President-Elect. She will hold this position until next year when she becomes President. After that, she will take on the position of Immediate Past President for a year, resulting in a four-year term. In addition to her numerous roles at TAHCH, Kristen has also been honored for her commitment to advocacy in home health and hospice community as 2017 and 2018 Chairperson of the Year.
In the ever changing world of health care, it is important to have dedicated individuals to actively represent the medically fragile community.
