The National Respiratory Network provides assistance in business development, including consulting, a best practices guide, a quarterly newsletter for your distribution, as well as access to program development.

Industry Advocacy is a paramount benefit for the members of the National Respiratory Network. They know that as members they have a voice with the AARC, AAHomecare, various patient groups, and physician groups, such as ATS, ACCP and NAMDRC.

The Traveling Oxygen Program is a valuable benefit. The National Respiratory Network provides its members with MED Group Program literature and networking. This program is a great benefit for your customers who want to travel yet feel the limitations of traveling with oxygen.

Finally, as with all MED programs, education is a cornerstone of the National Respiratory Network. The Network provides access to clinical studies, relevant courses from MED U, as well as CEU training programs.

Historically, home respiratory care services have fallen into the category of durable medical equipment (DME), as defined by the Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA), as well as many other third party payment agencies. The increasing demand for home respiratory related products and services, along with the clinical and technological advances, warrants a more specific definition.

The MED Group’s National Respiratory Network accepts and promotes the American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC) official position statement governing home respiratory care services.
