SDAHO Launches Updated Website

The South Dakota Association of Healthcare Organizations is excited to launch our newly updated website, www.sdaho.org. For the past 95 years SDAHO has been the go-to organization where members can find trustworthy and up-to-date information and news impacting the healthcare community. SDAHO continues to advance healthy communities through a unified voice across the health care continuum and using our website continues to be a tool to help us share important information and resources.

Our newly updated website provides easier access to the many resources SDAHO has to offer. Providing education opportunities and professional development growth through in-person and virtual webinars continues to be part of SDAHO’s mission. Now, with the newly updated website members can easily register for classes, join webinars live as they happen or have access to archived material to watch at their own convenience.

An important aspect of SDAHO’s mission is through advocating for members both at the state and federal level. SDAHO’s online visitors, can easily stay up to date on the latest legislation impacting healthcare, through our Bill Tracker. In addition – with just a click of a button members are able to hear firsthand edited highlights from legislative committee hearings  on key issues.

As the healthcare community continues to stay on top of COVID-19 news and information, SDAHO continues to provide the latest details to our members on the homepage for easy access.

SDAHO knows how busy you are, we have made our new homepage clean, easy to find and more accessible than ever before. To help with these efforts, SDAHO created audio and visual messaging. This allows you to receive a snapshot look at key issues, upcoming conferences, education opportunities and webinars with easy to access information on the issues that are important to you. Learn more about our healthcare hero campaign, where you can hear from our heroes recognized.  Healthcare heroes can be nominated on the website and heroes will be continued to be recognized and celebrated in 2021.

To all our members, thank you for your continued support and trusting SDAHO to keep you up-to-date on the latest healthcare issues. Visit us today and do not forget to sign up for our Unified Voice Newsletter where the latest news can be delivered directly to your inbox.
