—Via NAHC, WASHINGTON, D.C. (December 4, 2017)—Growth in the private duty homecare industry industry has led to calls for more oversight and regulation and more states are considering legislation to make accreditation for private duty homecare agencies mandatory.
You can beat the mandates and stand out from your competition by becoming an accredited private duty home care agency now, before it becomes the industry standard. Industry experts with decades of experience have created the Private Duty Home Care Association (PDHCA) accreditation process. They have created a process that works, guided by the most experienced experts in the business.
There are two levels of accreditation:
- Level I—Pre-Accreditation/Accreditation Pathway (documentation upload through an online portal); and
- Level II—Full Accreditation (requires a site visit)
Accreditation is determined by a PDHCA review board and is valid for three years. The entire application and review process only takes about 90 days. Learn more at accreditation.homecareuniversity.com.
Better still, PDHCA accreditation fees are very reasonable and membership with the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) may pay for some, or all, of the accreditation cost. Fees are based on your organization’s gross revenue for the prior calendar year, so no organization is too small. The PDHCA accreditation process is available to any home care agency of any size.
