Your guide through the accreditation process
In August 2014, Governor Christie signed legislation (P.L.2014, c.29) which requires all New Jersey Health Care Service Firms to obtain accreditation with a state recognized accrediting body.
Home Care Consulting Services LLC was founded by a recognized industry expert, Barbara Cording, RN, BSN, to specifically assist New Jersey home care providers in obtaining and maintaining this mandatory accreditation. Ms. Cording has worked for over 40 years in home care and was Executive Director of the Commission on Accreditation for Home Care, a New Jersey based and state-recognized accrediting body. She is a certified consultant for Community Health Accreditation Partner (CHAP), Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC) , a recommended Commission on Accreditation for Home Care (CAHC) consultant and on the Accreditation Board for the National Institute for Home Care Accreditation (NIHCA), all of which are recognized accrediting bodies by the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs to meet the mandatory accreditation requirement.
The focus of Home Care Consulting Services LLC is to educate you and your staff on the accreditation standards – their meaning, how your operations are affected, and ways to comply. Ms. Cording and her staff will provide you with one-on-one personalized services to help you obtain and maintain accreditation.
