The Association coordinates the New England Performance Improvement Network (NEPI) - a collaborative project among the Flex programs and the State Offices of Rural Health in VT, MA, NH and ME.  With funding from the Flex program, NEPI has allowed members at Grace Cottage to receive certifications related to their jobs. We have taken advantage of CIC, CPHQ, CPHRM and CHC certifications. This has been a valuable benefit.  This year we are taking advantage of the TNCC certification for some of our nursing staff. Another benefit is having access to free, or sponsored webinars from the Association which allows us to keep up with this ever-changing field of Healthcare.
