The Accreditation Commission for Health Care, Inc. (ACHC) and the Ohio Council for Home Care & Hospice (OCHCH) are pleased to announce a partnership between the two organizations with members of OCHCH receiving discounts on ACHC accreditation and other products. Additionally, members have access to potential member-only educational opportunities, clinical guidance from ACHC experts and access to a wide variety of ACHC resources.
"This is a great opportunity for OCHCH to partner with an outstanding organization such as the Accreditation Commission for Health Care,” stated Kathleen Anderson, President of the OCHCH Board of Directors. “It allows us to follow our mission and ensure our members have access to quality education."
Founded in 1965, the Ohio Council for Home Care and Hospice serves as the voice of Ohio-based home care and hospice organizations by providing advocacy, education, information and research to their 560 members.
“Ohio is a strong state with a growing number of agencies delivering quality home and community-based health care,” said Matt Hughes, ACHC Director of Business Development & Customer Service. “OCHCH is a leader; they continually evolve to better serve their members by both recognizing industry trends and providing them with a united voice that remains the driving force behind the association. Our partnership will allow us to further serve their members.”
ACHC is a not-for-profit organization that has stood as a symbol of quality and excellence since 1986. They are ISO 9001:2008 certified and have CMS Deeming Authority for Home Health, Hospice and DMEPOS. ACHC is the provider’s choice for accreditation because of personal Accreditation Advisors, relevant and realistic standards, competitive pricing and a friendly, consultative approach to accreditation. Accreditation by ACHC reflects an organization’s dedication and commitment to meeting standards that facilitate a higher level of performance and patient care.
