Walnut, Creek, CA (PRWEB) April 27, 2012
Professional HealthCare At Home, a leading provider of home care and hospice services, has received accreditation with deemed status. Professional HealthCare At Home was accredited by Community Health Accreditation Program (CHAP), an independent, not-for-profit, accrediting body for community-based health care organizations.
Through “deeming authority” granted by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), CHAP has the regulatory authority to survey agencies providing home health, hospice, and home medical equipment services, to determine if they meet the Medicare Conditions of Participation and CMS Quality Standards. These agencies are "deemed" to meet Medicare conditions of participation because of their CHAP seal of approval.
“We are very pleased that Professional HealthCare At Home chose CHAP accreditation,” said Terry A. Duncombe, CHAP President and CEO. “Voluntarily selecting to achieve CHAP accreditation and meeting our high standards of excellence demonstrates Professional HealthCare At Home commitment to quality. CHAP is delighted to work with their entire team through the ongoing process of quality improvement.”
“Following an extensive review of all aspects of our organization both administrative and clinical, another three years of deemed status has been awarded to Professional HealthCare At Home by CHAP,” said Sally Dehaven, Administrator of Professional HealthCare At Home. “It is rewarding for our clinical staff and management to be acknowledged for all the hard work and excellent care we give to our Bay Area community.”
