American Care Partners, a Skilled Home Health Care Provider for Children and Adults, awarded Joint Commision Home Health Care Accreditation
Date:10/14/2015

American Care Partners, a Skilled Home Health Care Provider for Children and Adults in Northern Virginia, today announced that it has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Home Care Accreditation by demonstrating continuous compliance with its performance standards. The Gold Seal of Approval® is a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to providing safe and effective care.

American Care Partners underwent a rigorous on-site survey in July, 2015. During the survey, compliance with home care standards reflecting key organization areas was evaluated, including the provision of care, treatment and services, emergency management, human resources, individual rights and responsibilities, and leadership. The accreditation process also provided American Care Partners with education and guidance to help staff continue to improve its home care program’s performance.

"When individuals engage a home care provider they want to be sure that provider is capable of providing safe, quality care,” said Margherita Labson, RN, M.S., executive director, Home Care Accreditation program, The Joint Commission. “As the home care setting becomes increasingly popular, it is important that home care providers are able to demonstrate that they are capable of providing safe, high quality care. Accreditation by The Joint Commission and the gold seal serve as an indication that the organization has demonstrated compliance to these recognized standards of safe and quality care.”

American Care Partners is pleased to receive accreditation from The Joint Commission, the premier health care quality improvement and accrediting body in the nation. Our Decision to volunteer for evaluations by The Joint Commission is part of our firm commitment for continuous improvement efforts in health care quality and patient safety and to help support our operational efficiency,” added Elias Demoz, MD, MBA, FACP, CEO of American Care Partners. “For our team members, accreditation reinforces our commitment to quality and serves as a mechanism through which we continuously focus on improving service and patient satisfaction..”
