The Illinois Health Care Association is committed to providing our members with efficient and effective information through our comprehensive communication program. In addition to the publications listed below, our members also receive email alerts from the association when urgent, time-sensitive matters arise.
Annual Membership Directory & Buyers’ Guide
Each year IHCA publishes a comprehensive membership directory and buyers’ guide that includes a wealth of information. This guide acts as a ‘one stop shop’ for member networking with other long term care professionals, vendors and the association. In addition, the directory includes contact information for state legislators, important agencies and the members of the United States Congress.
The IHCA Online Directory is a great resource when searching for products and services to help your facility operate smoothly and efficiently. With information about all of IHCA’s Associate Members and a variety of search options, this electronic guide is available 24/7 to help you to find what you need when you need it.
Each year IHCA publishes an annual report that provides a comprehensive overview of the association’s many accomplishments. These reports include information regarding both IHCA and The Center for Developmental Disabilities Advocacy and Community Supports (The Center).
LTC Today, IHCA’s bi-annual magazine, is a valuable source of information for members of IHCA and others interested in the long term care profession. Each issue covers a variety of topics, including the latest in technology and products, member accomplishments, future trends in long term care, facility profiles and more.
Starting in 2018, IHCA will be working with E&M Consulting, Inc. to publish LTC Today. If you are interested in advertising in the magazine, click here to view the media kit or click here to view the rate card.
