Cary, NC (PRWEB) August 17, 2015
Following the introduction of its Certified Consultant program last year, ACHC has announced additional training courses to be held at its headquarters in Cary, NC. The ACHC Certified Consultant program is designed for industry professionals that provide consulting services for healthcare organizations preparing for ACHC accreditation.
“ACHC recognizes the vital role that consultants hold in the healthcare industry by applying their expertise to enhance business operations,” said Greg Stowell, Education and Consulting Manager. “It is our goal to help industry consultants become experts on the ACHC accreditation process, allowing them to better serve their clients.”
The ACHC Certified Consultant program allows industry professionals to demonstrate proficiency in ACHC accreditation standards and processes to potential clients. Consultants who successfully complete the post-course assessment will receive ACHC Certified Consultant recognition, a company listing on ACHC’s website, access to ACHC accreditation standards, and the ACHC Accreditation Guide to Success workbook.
The upcoming Certified Consultant training will be held at ACHC headquarters in Cary, NC on December 2 and 3, 2015. The training will be led by ACHC Clinical Compliance Educators who have extensive experience operating healthcare organizations and surveying to ACHC standards. ACHC will offer two separate courses specifically designed for the services provided:
1. Home Health, Hospice, and Private Duty
2. Pharmacy and DMEPOS
Consultants may register online at achc.org/accreditation-university/certified-consultant-training
As a nationally recognized accreditation organization, ACHC places great value on the survey preparation process. As such, the introduction of the Certified Consultant program will allow healthcare providers to select a trained consultant that is proficient in ACHC accreditation process as well as the area of service that they provide. Through such a process, providers will be well prepared for the accreditation survey, ultimately resulting in the highest quality of healthcare provided.
ACHC is a not-for-profit accreditation organization that has stood as a symbol of quality and excellence since 1986. The organization has CMS Deeming Authority for Home Health, Hospice, and DMEPOS and a Quality Management System that is certified to ISO 9001:2008. ACHC’s broad range of accreditation programs also includes Pharmacy, Sleep, Private Duty Nursing, and Behavioral Health. ACHC is the provider’s choice for accreditation because of its personal Account Advisors, relevant and realistic standards, competitive pricing, and 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.
