Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC) is excited to announce its new partnership with the Home Care Association of Florida (HCAF). This agreement allows HCAF association members to receive special pricing on ACHC’s Home Health, Hospice, and Private Duty Accreditation services, as well as discounts on Accreditation University (AU) educational resources that help prepare HCAF association members for ACHC Accreditation.
“ACHC is proud to partner with HCAF in an effort to provide the Florida-based home care providers with relevant standards, best practices, and educational resources,” said Matt Hughes, ACHC Director, Business Management & Customer Service. “We are encouraged by HCAF’s forward-thinking in the development of its association, in support of more than 500 members, and their patients.
