NVNA Works Receives Home Care Accreditation
Home Care Alliance of Massachusetts Sets Quality and Business Standards
“We are very proud of this accreditation and what it represents,”
The Home Care Alliance launched this Accreditation Program for Private Pay agencies (agencies that are not paid by Medicare or Medicaid), in July, 2010. Agencies seeking accreditation are required to submit documentation to show that they meet standards established by the Alliance.
The standards were developed over several months in consultation with an advisory task force representing agencies throughout the Commonwealth. Training requirements, administrative protocols, and business practices are among the categories that the Alliance reviews for accreditation.
“We wanted to provide leadership for an area that is becoming more and more important to the health care delivery system in Massachusetts,”
