CHAP provides the training, certification, and accreditation tools you’ll need to deliver the highest quality care. Accreditation provides the standards you need. Education and certification programs help ensure your standards are delivered day after day.
CHAP is solely focused on care and services in the home. Every standard and process you will encounter is designed specifically for organizations like you, not inpatient care. The needs of your organization change as you grow. From opening your doors and achieving Medicare certification to building an infrastructure to support a larger team that keeps expanding – you need a partner that grows and adapts to your needs.
CHAP’s patient-centered, partner-focused philosophy completely changes the dynamic of accreditation and creates an environment of learning and improvement. CHAP standards are non-prescriptive. The recognition that not every provider and community is the same sets CHAP apart, enabling your mission and vision to drive the delivery of care.
At the same time, performance-improving training for community-based care is often challenging, inconsistent, and expensive. CHAP has convenient, cost-effective solutions to make everything from orientation, career ladders, and succession planning; seamless.
Your CPIs are our KPIs. We measure our success by giving our partners an experience that enables them to achieve the desired and expected outcome that they value. Clinical quality, operational effectiveness, and growth for our partners, guides every decision we make about how we serve you.
