My.NHPCO—a Great Resource for Allied Therapists One of the best ways to exchange ideas and tips with your colleagues is through the NCHPP Allied Therapist eGroup on NHPCO’s professional networking site, My.NHPCO. (It’s free for staff and volunteers of NHPCO providermembers.) Each NCHPP Section has an eGroup on My.NHPCO (much like the former listserves, but better), plus an eLibrary where members post helpful information and resources to help one another. If you’re not already a My.NHPCO user, visit the homepage and see “Getting Started” in the top right corner. For specific questions, contact the NHPCO Solutions Center at 800-646-6460 (Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., ET). 26 NewsLine
