What is accreditation?

Accreditation is a process of review that health care organizations participate in to demonstrate the ability to meet predetermined criteria and standards of accreditation established by a professional accrediting agency. 

Accreditation represents agencies as credible and reputable organizations dedicated to ongoing and continuous compliance with the highest standard of quality.

On-site surveys are conducted every three years by industry experts.  A comprehensive review is conducted of organizational structure, policies and procedures, compliance with federal/state/local laws, leadership, patients’ rights & responsibilities, fiscal operations, human resource management, provision of care, patient records, quality outcomes, performance improvement, infection control and patient/employee safety.  At time of survey, organizations demonstrate how they have maintained continuous compliance with the HQAA Standards for Accreditation.

DME accreditation standards designed for quality champions.

As the quality champions in the industry, HQAA's standards have to be high. That's why HQAA offers the same level of quality and business management as the traditional accreditation organizations. In addition, HQAA's standards reflect benchmarks that are specific to the DME business, i.e., everything from patient care to business practices to home deliveries.
