Accreditation is a process in which certification of competency, authority, or credibility is presented. Any organization can aim to accredited status. The designation of accredited status serves to provide assurance that it has been found to meet the particular accrediting agency’s requirements and criteria and the requirements and criteria are continuously met through periodic reviews, examinations and re-application.

Additionally, the process of achieving accredited status promotes internal review by the candidate’s institution and increases operational responsibility and quality control. Thus, following the accreditation it will be ascertained that:

  • The organization is certified and meets certain high-quality standards.
  • The services the stakeholders receive from the certified organization will provide the benefits associated with these high-quality standards.

We can assist your organization in achieving and maintaining readiness for any survey and developing a full understanding of the intent of any set of standards and the applicability in your unique environment. Working collaboratively with your senior management team and front-line managers, our consultants use a variety of methods to assess quality and safety issues, including:

  • Tracer methodology
  • Interviews with care providers
  • Review of key documents
  • Facility tours
