As a recognized leader in Hospice Accreditation, our process provides the guidance and resources providers need to deliver the best patient care.

CHAP understands hospice is delivered wherever a patient calls home, including hospice centers, hospitals, nursing homes and other long-term care facilities. As a result, we have created an easy to implement accreditation process.

The foundation of our program is the CHAP Standards of Excellence, created by providers and for providers. The Standards of Excellence are continually monitored and updated to ensure your facility is employing the most effective and efficient strategies to provide the highest standard of care to your patients and their families.

All of our CHAP Site Visitors, who guide you through the process, are Registered Nurses (RNs) with many years of experience in hospice. They are familiar with the workings of hospice care teams that include physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, home health aides, social workers, and therapists. They also understand the challenges of working with this special group of patients and weave the standards of our accreditation program into your facility’s protocols as seamlessly as possible.
