“We admire the leadership and collaboration exemplified by ACHC and are proud to continue this partnership,” said Tim Rogers, President and CEO of AHHC. “Many may not realize this, but AHHC helped establish the Accreditation Commission in 1986. Decades later, the two organizations have a strong relationship that benefits our member agencies. AHHC members receive discounted accreditation services through ACHC, so not only are our agency members pursuing higher quality through accreditation with ACHC, but they are also saving money thanks to our partnership.”
ACHC is a nonprofit 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 is the provider’s choice for accreditation because of its 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.
