We are all too familiar with the threats facing our industry, including competitive bidding, audits and reimbursement cuts. ATHOMES enables suppliers to unite to make a difference. As one founder said, "Every supplier in Tennessee needs to be active and contribute time and resources toward protecting out companies and our industry. There is strength in numbers, and now is the time to prove it!"

Our industry needs accessible, effective leadership that focuses on developing the relationships and strong political connections that will be required to help shape legislative and regulatory changes, and to keep industry members informed, both as to what needs to be done, and how to do it.
