    Overview:

    Accreditation is an established method of recognizing quality. Academic institutions and healthcare organizations have relied on accreditation for decades to demonstrate their commitment to quality and accountability to stakeholders. Federal, state and local jurisdictions also realize the value of accreditation; evidenced by changing regulations in licensing and contracting.  

    NATSAP recently changed membership standards to require accreditation for all member programs beginning June 2023. This change will ensure ongoing quality improvement processes are embedded in their programs to demonstrate higher levels of performance and exceed regulatory health and safety requirements. This presentation will provide an overview of CARF accreditation. The information shared will assist you in determining whether CARF and our unique features fit you best. Hear directly from a fellow member about how CARF accreditation has impacted their program.
