  Ancillary Care Accreditation    

How HQAA streamlines ancillary care accreditation.

At HQAA, "Become a quality champion" is not only a mantra, it's a must. Our goal is to not only ensure HME providers meet our high-quality standards, but to help them truly champion quality care for their patients.

Step 1: HQAA assigns accreditation coach.

The HQAA accreditation coach works with individual HME providers to guide them through the policy and procedure manual documentation process standard-by-standard. Coaches provide feedback on the standard criteria and are also available via phone, e-mail and instant messenger to answer questions or provide additional resources. This reduces both the time and stress associated with traditional accreditation programs.

Step 2: HME provider completes their online Workroom.

Each provider will assign a Workroom Manager to tackle each of the policy and procedure documents. This is essentially the provider's "quality champion." The HQAA Workroom helps the Workroom Manager manage the accreditation process with a "virtual block timeline," an online tutorial, an easy website interface and the expert guidance of the coach.

Step 3: HQAA conducts unannounced survey.

All site visits are unannounced and not only verify the submitted documentation, but include observation of patient care and processes.
