What CHAP verification means for your organization

Founded in 1965, Community Health Accreditation Partner (CHAP) was created to recognize the need for and value of home and community-based care standards and accreditation. Today it’s known as an independent, nonprofit organization accrediting these providers. 

CHAP is a Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)-approved accrediting organization, surveying organizations that provide home health, hospice, and home medical equipment services to establish if Medicare Conditions of Participation and DMEPOS Quality Standard are met and recommend certification to CMS.

Their purpose is to partner with organizations nationwide to advance quality in the delivery of care and services in the home and community. But what does that mean for your organization?

MatrixCare is now CHAP verified for home health, hospice, and age-friendly care. Here are a few ways you and your patients can benefit from this new partnership:

CHAP accreditation is not only a gateway to forging stronger relationships with payors.

It’s also an assurance that MatrixCare aligns with CHAP standards that prioritize quality and continuous compliance.

CHAP verified status is granted to products that demonstrate no roadblocks to executing the standards of excellence.

This is just one more reason we’re always improving innovation and the delivery of high-quality care.

CHAP has decades of experience setting standards of care.

For over 55 years, the CHAP seal has stood as a beacon of trust and quality assurance for consumers.

CHAP partnerships drive excellence.

Earning this recognition reflects our unwavering commitment to providing top-tier solutions in community health, and we remain deeply committed to driving excellence in both patient care and operational efficiency.

CHAP verification provides peace of mind.

Customers can take comfort in that we will not only help them meet, but also exceed, the standards of care.

Our CHAP verification helps us continue as a leader in home health and hospice software, demonstrates our ongoing commitment to quality, and helps ensure clinicians’ jobs are easier and more efficient.
