Abstract:  Accreditation plays a significant role in fostering public confidence in the healthcare organization, enhancing organizational effectiveness, and improving patient care. It also provides the basis on which referral sources and payers can be assured that accredited organizations have complied with a common set of requirements and standards. Accreditation is the only comprehensive measure of a home infusion company’s performance. The objective of this article is to provide information to help streamline and simplify the accreditation process and lower implementation times and associated costs.
