Home Health Aide (HHA) Registration Program

Program Overview

A home health aide is a person working for a home health agency or hospice that performs home health services ordered by a licensed physician, licensed chiropractor, licensed podiatrist, or licensed optometrist.  The home health aide must successfully complete a home health agency's competency evaluation. 

Home Health Agencies and Hospices are responsible for establishing their own policies on qualifications and needed training.  State government does not certify training sites or the syllabus of each individual agency or organization under contract to provide training services.

The ISDH Home Health Aide Registration Program ensures that home health aides meet the qualifications for a home health aide and are appropriately registered on the Aide Registry.  The program administers the Aide Registry.
