P & R Home IV Service dba P & R Medical Connection is an accredited corporation. Following is the very important requirements of why you need to choose only accredited providers for your health care. At P&R we take great pride in meeting these requirements on a continuous basis.

ACHC Accreditation

The Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC) has been accrediting health care organizations since 1986. ACHC offers an accreditation program developed by providers for providers with written, user-friendly standards and interpretations. ACHC accredits home health agencies, home infusion companies, home care aide programs, home medical equipment suppliers, specialty pharmacies, hospices and companies that specialize in services and products for post breast surgery patients.

ACHC Accreditation Requirements

To earn and maintain ACHC accreditation, an organization must have an extensive on-site review by a team of ACHC healthcare professionals, at the time of initial accreditation and at least once every three years. To become accredited an organization must have policies and procedures that cover:

  • Organization and Administration
  • Program/Service Operations
  • Fiscal Management
  • Personnel Management
  • Client Service/Care Management
  • Quality Outcomes/Improvement
  • Risk Management: Infection Control & Safety Control
  • Scope of Services

Mandatory Accreditation

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has set 2007 as the date for which all providers must be accredited. If an organization wants to participate in Medicare or Medicaid services and wants to participate in the competitive bidding process, accreditation is no longer an option. Becoming accredited is essential to organizational survival and the only way to win contracts from larger third-party payers.
