Accreditation. Education. Certification

Standards For Growing Providers

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 Accreditation is a gateway to building a strong relationship with payors while CHAP Standards ensure quality and ongoing compliance. The CHAP seal has been a symbol of trust and quality to consumers for over 55 years.

Disease Program Certification

A CHAP Certified Disease Program proves you have a consistent, well-executed framework of care that can lead to reduced hospital readmissions, higher patient satisfaction, and increased public quality ratings. All this leads to new opportunities to increase your organization’s census and growth, while simultaneously reducing employee turnover and increasing engagement.

Growth Solutions

The team of multidisciplinary experts works alongside you to develop a scalable plan to boost admissions and revenue through strategic solutions tailored to your market, referral sources, and agency needs.

Better Standards Are Closer Than You Think

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.

Serving Beyond Accreditation

The combination of our common sense standards, accessibility, and education are crucial to providers like you to navigate the road ahead.

Customer Performance Indicators

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.
