Business Growth and Financial Success
Accreditation leads to two things: Better quality care. Better business performance.
CHAP standards are specific to home and community-based care, they provide practical, straightforward guidance to our partners’ specific business model. Many CHAP accredited organizations use them as part of their business plan. New or developing organizations use CHAP standards and partnership as a foundation for growth.
CHAP has deeming authority granted by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to determine whether you meet their quality standards and the Medicare Conditions of Participation. If you are a home health, hospice or a home medical equipment provider, you can opt to seek deemed status under CMS.
Through deemed status, you can reduce the number of Site Visits from different agencies, since deemed status accreditation can replace state surveys — with one exception, Medicare does validate our findings with a small sample (3 to 6 percent) of deemed organizations each year. This means that CMS holds us to the same standards we hold our partner organizations.
Whether your company is large or small, new or established, CHAP’s process and standards will help your business to continually improve.
