Obtaining accreditation for certain health-related support services can be a boon for community-based organizations (CBOs) looking to stand out amid the crowd of health care payer and provider partners. Accreditation can build and reinforce expertise in certain competencies, help foster a culture of continuous quality improvement, and ultimately serve as a powerful marketing tool that might lead to increased attention and interest from the health care sector. The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) is a leader in the field of health and long-term care accreditation.
On this TIM Talks webinar, sponsored by the Administration for Community Living (ACL), NCQA staff, an Area Agency on Aging (AAA) director, and Tim McNeill describe the accreditation process, explain the value it can bring to CBOs, and take audience questions.
