4 Simple Steps to Onboarding

To set you up for success, we have detailed four simple steps to prepare for your first onboarding session. 

First, help us customize your onboarding process.

1. Schedule Your Onboarding Session

You will receive a welcome email including a link to book your first onboarding meeting. Only one person should complete the scheduling request, but you should consider including all key contacts. Examples of key contacts include: Business Finance Champion, Practice Admin, Physician Champion, Contracting Leader, and/or Quality Leader.

2. Share Your Interests

What are you interested in learning about when it comes to your VHAN membership? Let us know before your initial onboarding meeting to help us tailor the session to your needs.

Complete the Interest Survey 

Then, take care of some housekeeping items.

2. Register for Member Badge Access

The VHAN Member Badge designates you as a member of the network and represents a consistent message of quality. To receive access to badge files, an authorized leader on your team must sign the badge agreement (linked below) and acknowledge usage guidelines. This agreement only needs to be signed once by one member for everyone in the practice to use the badge.

3. Share Practice Contact List

Send us the email addresses of your practice’s key contacts so we can provide you with the latest and greatest network communications. You may provide these lists in whatever format is easiest for your practice. We can also provide a template if needed. You may send your list to memberinfo@vhan.com. Be sure to indicate which practice the list is coming from.

If you have any questions about the onboarding steps above, please contact us.
