Each recipient is expected to be responsible for identifying, establishing, and monitoring a network of HTCs in the region. In collaboration with the NHPCC, recipients are expected to provide monitoring oversight, technical assistance (TA), education, and quality improvement opportunities for HTC staff on staff development issues, best practices for disease management and evidence-informed treatment guidelines, and patient and family education.
