Caregiver Homes Receives Highest Status of Case Management
BOSTON — Caregiver Homes Network Inc. has achieved the highest accreditation status of case-management accreditation from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).
The structured family-caregiving model of care delivered by Caregiver Homes has received this accreditation, which recognizes service and quality that demonstrates strong performance that meets NCQA’s rigorous requirements for case management. NCQA’s case-management accreditation is a comprehensive, evidence-based accreditation program dedicated to quality improvement that can be used for case-management programs in provider, payer, or community-based organizations. The highest accreditation status extends accreditation to an organization for three years.
“Managed-care organizations consider NCQA accreditation to be the benchmark for evaluating other quality healthcare organizations,” said Caregiver Homes CEO Tom Riley. “Caregiver Homes is extremely proud to be the first entity focused on home- and community-based services to achieve an NCQA case-management accreditation.”
Margaret O’Kane, president of NCQA, noted that “case-management accreditation moves us closer to measuring quality across population-health-management initiatives. Not only does it add value to existing quality-improvement efforts, it also demonstrates an organization’s commitment to the highest degree of improving the quality of their patients’ care.”
