Join the professionals at ACHC in their brand new office building in Raleigh, NC on May 30, 2013 for Achieving Private Duty Accreditation”. 

One of the growing trends in private duty home care is the accreditation of home care companies to demonstrate their commitment to quality of care. In fact, the NC Division of Medical Assistance will require agencies to become accredited in private duty nursing only by March 2014. The Accreditation Commission for Health Care was one of the first accrediting agencies to establish quality standards for private duty home care that are separate from the standards for home health care. 

Now, ACHC wants to help you learn more about the accreditation process to help you decide if accreditation is right for your company. Specifically created for organizations seeking accreditation for the first time, this workshop provides an in-depth look at pre-survey preparation, key steps to having a successful onsite survey and how to complete important post-survey components. Participants also learn essential information for preparing the Preliminary Evidence Review (PER) as well as creating an effective Plan of Correction (POC). 

During the workshop, an ACHC clinical educator and surveyor provides participants with hands-on training for utilizing their take-home edition of the ACHC Accreditation Guide to Success, a program-specific, comprehensive tool that offers guidance on the meanings and requirements of each ACHC Standard. Specifically developed to help organizations create more efficient policies and procedures, this resource contains audit tools and hints, essential components for accreditation preparation and best practices for a successful on-site survey. 

Revision Notice: On May 28, 2013 we replaced “In fact, the state of North Carolina has passed a new law requiring certain private duty companies to be accredited.” with “In fact, the NC Division of Medical Assistance will require agencies to become accredited in private duty nursing only by March 2014.”  We want to make sure we provide accurate and clear information about new accreditation regulations in North Carolina.
