ACHC, a private, not-for-profit corporation that is certified to IS 9001:2000 standards, was developed by home care and community-based providers to help organizations improve business operations and quality of patient care. Organizations seeking accreditation submit to a peer review of internal policies, processes and patient care delivery against national standards. ACHC's survey process leads an organization to examine its policies and practices on a continual basis to identify the organization's strengths and improve upon its weaknesses.
